In a pre-departure statement
Fisher said that the purpose of the
mission "is to observe at first hand
one of the war's most serious
effects — the dislocation and forced
curtailment of Israel's broad pro-
gram of social services for the
hundreds of thousands of Jewish
immigrants whom the UJA has
helped bring to Israel, and for
whose absorption into the social
and economic life of that country
the UJA shares responsibility."
The urgent needs of 350,000 Jew-
ish refugees from Asian and Afri-
can countries, now in Israel, were
outlined Tuesday night to the
members of the mission at a dinner
marking the opening of their ses-
sions. The speaker, Louis Pincus,
chairman of the Jewish Agency
Executive, declared that the Six-
Day War did not solve any of the
social problems of these people.
