of $29 Billion—Ebon
JERUSALEM (ZINS) — Accord-
ing to reliable estimates by ex-
perts in this field, Jews have
been robbed by the Nazis of
$12,000,000,000 in funds and per-
sonal possessions. The loss of in-
come and labor of those mas-
sacred amounts to an additional
These figures were given in a
reply by Foreign Minister Abba
Eban to a question put to him
in the Knesset on reparations pay-
ments from Germany. Eban re-
, ported that the state of Israel and
the Jewish victims of Nazi perse-
cution throughout the world re-
ceived from Germany reparation
payments totaling 3,800,000,000 Ger-
man marks. Israeli citizens have
until now brought into the coun-

the sum of 4,000,000,000 marks.
According to German govern-

its inception in 1959, it was an-

Half of the young men and
women have taken positions, or
will take them upon completion of
their training, with various Euro-

Broido added. The remainder, who
come from Israel, North Africa
and India, returned to their
countries and took positions there.
Broido explained that the fund
was created primarily to help the

JNF BLUE BOX
The JNF Blue Box is so much more
than a fund raising medium. It consti-
tutes our tangible link with the soil of
Israel and is a living connection with
the early days of Zionist history. It was
On the last day of the memorable Fifth
Zionist Congress on December 29. 1901,
in Basle, that Theodor Herzl first asked
for contributions towards the Jewish
National Fund, himself placing the first
coin from his own pocket into his hat.
From then onward the idea expanded
to embrace the whole of Jewry, with
the first Blue Box manufactured in
Vienna in 1902.
In these days of massive direct ap-
peals, isn't the Blue Box as a fund
raising medium out-dated? No, the Blue
Box is the method best suited for dona-
tions by the masses embracing every
Member of the family, young and old,
and should become an automatic act in
the preservation of the Jewish national
Idea, a vivid educational means of re-
minding our children of their history
How wonderful to think that in all
the strains of Jewish history during 65
years, the little collection box of the
Jewish National Fund is as alive today
as ever it has been!
The Blue Box links every home which
it graces with Israel, and fits into the
ipattern of Jewish life everywhere,
for it affords everyone the opportunity
to add his or her contribution to the
Jewish National Fund.
