S. Z. Shragai to Bring First-Hand Data
to Detroit on Israel Aliyah, June 9, 10

First hand information on Ali-
yah in Israel and opportunities for
American technicians desiring to
help in Israel's upbuilding will be
brought to Detroit on June 9 and
10 by the head of the Aliyah de-
partment of the Jewish Agency, S.
Z. Shragai.
Upon his arrival here on June
9, Mr. Shragai will address a lunch-
eon meeting of local rabbis at the
Jewish Center. On June 10 he will
be a luncheon guest at a gather-
ing of representatives of Zionist
organizations and of other groups
interested in Israel's upbuilding
and resettlement.
On Wednesday, June 9, at 8:30
p.m., Mr. Shragai will address a
public meeting at Congregation
Beth Abraham, under the joint
auspices of the Zionist Council
of Detroit and the Midwestern
Section of the Jewish Agency
for Israel.
Recognized as the best informed
man on Aliyah and settlement op-
portunities in Israel, Mr. Shragai
is on a brief visit in this country
to outline to American Jewish
communities the historic work of
his department.
Mr. Shragai came to Israel as a
chalutz from Poland, 40 years ago.
A scion of an eminent Hassidic
family, he received a thorough
Jewish education and was instilled
by his father with a passionate
love of Zion.
He was the founder of the first
Hachshara group of the young
Mizrachi in his town and later be-
came one of the founders of the
Mizrachi Halutz movement in Po-
land.
A year after his arrival to Israel
he was elected to the executive of
the religious labor movement
there (Hapoel-Hamizrachi). From
then on he continued rising on the
ladder of leadership of the re-
ligious Zionist movement as well
as of the general Jewish Com-
munity.
Mr. Shragai was elected to the
Vaad Leumi, the representative
body of the Jewish community of
Palestine at that time.
At the 22nd Zionist Congress,
Mr. Shragai was elected to the
Jewish Agency Executive and was
active in its political department.
uring his service in London, he
ucceeded in spreading the Zion-
ist doctrines in church and Con-
servative circles.
In 1948, Shragai addressed the
annual convention of the Scotch
church, where 6,000 ministers
participated. As a result, the
convention adopted an important
resolution in support of Zionist
aims.
When the State of Israel was
proclaimed, he returned to Jeru-
salem, where he continued his acti-
vities as a member of the Jewish
Agency. Mr. Shragai believes that
as long as Jews remain in the Dia-

spora, and parts of the land of Is-
rael are still in non-Jewish hands,
there is still a need for a strong
Zionist movement to serve as a
link between the Jews of Israel
and their brethren in the four
corners of the world.
Mr. Shragai had the historic dis-
tinction of having been the first
Mayor of Jerusalm after the pro-
clamation of the Independent State
of Israel. In that important post
he continued for but a few years,
for he was called to assume the
great responsibility of conducting
the crucial process of the "ingath-
ering of the exiles"—being elected
Head of the Aliyah (Immigration)
Department of the Jewish Agency.

It hasn't happened yet, and we hope
It never does. After all, everyone
