Arnun-Israeli $427 ,500 Fund Given for Histadrut Aid
A check of $427,500 representing
the net proceeds of the Amun-
Israeli !lousing Corporation was
presented this month to Yehoshua
Levy, treasurer of Histadrut, by
David Dubinsky, president emeri-
tus of the International Ladies'
Garment Workers' Union. The
Corporation wound up its affairs
two years ago, after a 15 year rec-
ord of success in financing Hista-
drut cooperative housing projects
Amun-Israeli was set up by
American trade unionists at the
request of Histadrut, the Israel
labor federation, in 1950, to help
construct housing for the influx of
immigrants during that period of
mass immigration. The founders of
Amun-Israeli, in addition to Du-
binsky, were Jacob S. Potofsky,
president of the Amalgamated
Clothing Workers of America,
Charles S. Zimmerman, vice presi-
dent of the ILGWU, Walter K.
Marks and the late Louis Segal,
general secretary of the Farband.
Following the decision of the
hoard of trustees of Amun-Israeli
last October to dissolve the corpo-
ration and transfer its surplus to
the Ilistadrut Assistance Fund
(Cultural, Medical Health and As-
sistance Fund of the General Fed-
eration of Jewish Labor in Eretz
Yisrael), Supreme Court Justice
Hyman Korn ordered the petition-
ers on June 6 to transfer the
aforementioned assets accordingly.
In a letter sent to all bond hold-
ers in July, Dubinsky stated,
"As one of those who had faith in
this worthy undertaking and par-
ticipated in its tremendous success,
you will, I am sure, be gratified
by the fact that through this pro-
ject, we have helped to alleviate
the pressing housing problem that
faced the State of Israel when it
was established, and today, this
surplus will be utilized to assist
the people of Israel in its continu-
ing housing needs."
