NEW YORK (JTA)—A de-
cision to raise $5,125,000 in the
United States and Canada for
the Histadrut Campaign was
adopted at the five-day conven-
tion of the National Committee
for Labor Israel.
The 3,000 delegates partici-
pated in a prayer for the late
President Kennedy chanted in
Hebrew. A letter written by Mr.
Kennedy to the convention short-
ly before he was assassinated in
Dallas was read at the gathering.
The letter, one of the last writ-
ten by the late President, reads
"It is the abiding wish of
our people that men every-
where may realize the oppor-
tunity to work for a better
life for themselves and their
families, and in this spirit I
am pleased to congratulate the
National Committee for Labor
Israel on its 40th anniversary.
"The energies and skills, the
minds and hearts of the Jew-
ish people went into the build-
ing of a new society based on
timeless principles of freedom
and justice. Americans, too,
settled a new land and cre-
ated a democratic society
based upon these principles,
and in bringing economic and
cultural assistance to Israel,
the National Committee for
Labor Israel has demonstrated
its dedication to our country's
history and tradition.
"We are united by the com-
mon bond of freedom and we
give of our abundance to res-
cue the hopes of others. In
the same spirit Israel has
brought the skills and re-
sources of its own working
men and women to the service
of emerging nations around
Dr. Nahum Goldmann, pre-
sident of the World Zionost Or-
ganization, paid a glowing tri-
bute to the memory of Mr.
Kennedy, and warned that the
most serious danger facing Is-
rael today "is the possibility
that the Jewish people should
relax in its determination to
stand by Israel."
Dr. Sol Stein, executive direc-
tor of the National Committee
for Labor Israel, said in his an-
nual report to the convention
that, as of last Sept. 30, a record
sum of $5,768,971 was made
available for welfare projects . in
Israel by the National Commit-
tee and its related Pioneer
The total, he reported, was the
largest sum forwarded in a de-
cade, including $1,820,000 raised
through the Israel Histadrut
Campaign; $948,000 by the Pio-
neer Women for the Working
Women's Council of Histadrut;
and a long-term loan of $3,000,-

Yehoshua Levy, treasurer of
Histadrut, reported on the pro-
gram of the Histadrut Assist-
ance Fund, the agency set up in
Israel to administer the money
forwarded by the National Com-
mittee for Israeli welfare ser-
vices. Histadrut, he said, also
contributed out of its funds to-
ward this welfare program which
he reported, benefits 70 per
cent of Israel's population,
"Jews and Arabs alike."
Itzhak Ben-Aharon, member of
the Israel Parliament and labor
leader, stressed the need to step
up aid to Israel.
Under Secretary of Labor
John Henning lauded the "prag-
matic and romantic" aspects of
history which, he said, were com-
mon to the democracies of the
United and Israel.
Henning, who made a second
visit to Israel last September, re-
ported on the remarkable ad-
vances of the country, particu-
larly the progress of the Hista-
drut, the Israel labor federation.
He said it was largely due to
the Histadrut that Israel be-
came one of the great social
democracies and a state dedi-
cated to advance the progress of
all peoples and political and re-
ligious freedom" for Jew, Mos-
lem or Christian."
Rabbi Jacob J. Weinstein of
Chicago was re-elected national
chairman of the Committee. Dr.
Sol Stein was re-named execu-
tive director and Israel Stolar-
sky, associate director. Isaac
Hamlin, now a resident of Tel
Aviv, was again named Israel

Committee for Labor Israel.
