Medal Commemorates Declaration

The new state medal commemorating the 50th anniversary of
the Balfour Declaration issued by the Israel Government Coins and
Medals Corp. features a likeness of Lord Arthur Balfour and the
words "Balfour Declaration" in both Hebrew and English. On the
reverse side, a large tree is portrayed with the phrase, in English
and Hebrew, "To give thee this land to inherit." Each medal is
accompanied by a prospectus describing the full significance of the
Balfour Declaration, which the British government issued in 1917 to
pledge support for the establishment in Palestine of a national
home for the Jewish people. In bronze, the medal is being made
available at $4.50 each. In silver, medals will be available at $14
each. The medals may be ordered from the Israel Government Coins
and Medals Corp., 11 Keren Hayesod St., Jerusalem, with payment
in advance.

Libya had fled to Italy. He re-

50,000 Jews were In need of
some form of JDC help. In the
past 10 years, he reported, the
Jewish population of France had
risen from 300,000 to more than
500,000. He said this had result-

services as Jewish schools, syna-

from Tunisia and 4,000 from
Morocco, will require aid from the
Fonds Social Juif Unifie, the cen-
tral French Jewish welfare agen-
cy, and the liaison board of the
Jewish Associations of Peoples
from North Africa.
More refugees are expected in
the next few weeks.
