National Committee for Labor Israel Pledges at Parley
to Raise $5,000,000 for Histadrut to Help in Emergency

NEW YORK (JTA) — The Na-
tional Committee for Labor Israel
adopted Sunday, at the closing
session of its 43rd annual conven-
tion here, a quota of $5,000,000 for
its 1967 campaign for Histradrut,
Israel's labor federation.
In response to an emergency ap-
peal for cash for immediate trans-
mittal to Israel to implement the
Histadrut's programs in the fields
of health, education, vocational
training and social Welfare, the
2,000 delegates presented checks
totaling $1,000,000.
t The delegates also resolved to
.-, tain $2,000,000 in long-range
mmitments to the American His-
tadrut Development Foundation in
the form of wills ar. 1, bequests.
The delegates adopted a series
of resolutions, one of them ad-
dressed to the U.S. government
onrecent developments on the
Middle East question at the
United Nations, particularly the
action of the Security Council
in voting to censure Israel for a
Nov. 13 action against Jordan.
Declaring that "we are deeply
concerned with the welfare of Is-
rael," the delegates said they were
"profoundly shocked" by the Se-
curity Council's censure of Israel
for "defending its borders and
citizens."
The delegates expressed "dis-
may" that the Security Council

censure resolution "makes no men-
tion of the acts of terrorism and
sabotage carried on inside the
borders of Israel by terrorists with
the encouragement of governments
which have sworn to destroy Is-
rael, a member state of the United
Nations." The resolution warned
also that "the one-sided" council
action would encourage "the Arab
agressors to continue their provo-
catory course under a United Na-
tions cloak of immunity with the
support of the ever-present Soviet
veto."
The delegates said it was their
"firm belief" that the United
States, which condemned Israel for
the raid and voted for the resolu-
tion of censure, "should have
shown deeper understanding of the
unbearable position of Israel as a
victim of Arab aggression. We
therefore urge coir government to
call upon the Arab states to cease
their aggressive actions and to em-
bark on a policy of peaceful co-
existence with Israel."
The convention called, in an-
other resolution. for "continued
pressure on the authorities of
the Soviet Union to extend to the
Jews in that country the rights
exercised by all other minority
groups."
President Johnson, in a message
to the convention, commended
"the productive exchange of ideas
between Histadrut and the Ameri-
can trade union movement." The
President also said that the aims
of Histadrut in education, culture,
vocational training and health ser-
vices "coincide with those of our
nation."
Premier Levi Eshkol, in a mes-
sage of greeting, said that the an-
. nual campaign was particularly
significant this year because of
the • need to—absorb into "produc-
tive work thousands of youth and
unemployed workers" who need
"appropriate vocational training"
to become wage-earners.
Avraham Harman, Israel's am-
bassador to the United States, said
Israel's economic foundation, de-
spite present difficulties, was solid

and need only "expansion in
healthy directions." He said the
difficulties had arisen from the
fact that "Israel during the past 18
years has served as a hospital for
the Jewish people and as a school
for the Jewish people, open to all
those who wished to come" with-
out any questions asked whether
"they had means or if they had
any skills."
The delegates relected Joseph
Schlossberg as president. William
H. Sylk of Philadelphia was elect-
ed chairman of the American His-
tadrut Development Foundation.
Dr. Sol Stein was elected execu-
tive director and secretary of the
committee. Israel Stolarsky was
elected associate director and
Paul L. Goldman associate secre-
tary. Israel Hamlin, former com-
mittee secretary, was named chair-
man of the American Canadian,
Histadrut Center in Tel Aviv and
liaison officer of the committee.
Dr. Stein emphasized that Is-
rael's current economic difficul-
ties were "far from catastrophic"
and noted that the Government
and the Histadrut were seeking
to implement a new economic
policy that will "ultimately place
the country on a healthier
basis." He said that in the in-
terim many thousands of fami-
lies were feeling the effects of
joblessness but that "the mutual
aid institutions connected with
Histadrut are on hand to- alle-
viate some of the hardships,
providing, first of all, continu-
ing medical care and other wel-
fare services."
He said that the Histadrut voca-
tional training program must be
considerably expanded to prepare
Israelis for jobs when the new
economic policy begins to gener-
ate new employment.
