Israel Expecting
25,000 Immigrants
This Year—Pincus

NEW YORK (JTA) — Israel is
expecting 25,000 to 30,000 new
immigrants from various countries
this year. according to Louis A.
Pincus, chairman of the Jewish
Agency. in a report he gave Mon-
day at the 30th annual conference
of the council of organizations of
the United Jewish Appeal of Great-
er New York.
Pincus said that the new arrivals
will include many large families
and many who have been stripped
of all their possessions. They will
join nearly a half million other im-
migrants in Israel already depen-
dent on Jewish Agency programs
of resettlement and rehabilitation.
He stressed that the people of
Israel, whose resources are
"strained to the utmost" to meet
security needs and overcome eco-
nomic difficulties, "are in no posi-
tion to share the bunden of hu-
manitarian aid to their country's
immigrants."
Pincus also spoke before several
hundred delegates representing 13
national Zionist groups from all
over the country at an annual
leadership conference of the Ameri-
can Zionist Council. He empha-
sized the urgency of developing a
coordinated program for American
aliya that will translate the exist-
ing deep sympathy for Israel into
the reality of the manpower that
it so sorely needs.
Declaring that the creation of a
strong, unified Zionist movement
in the United States was one of the
imperatives of the reorganization
of the World Zionist movement that
will be considered • at the 27th
World Zionist Congress this June,
Pincus said that the American
Zionist Council must be strength-
ened as a functioning agency so
that it can more effectively con-
duct a program for aliya and edu-
cation in the United States.
"The need for an effective, oper-
ational unified Zionist organization
in the United States," Pincus said,
"transcends the individual organi-
zational programs and aspirations
of the various groupings within the
Zionist movement. Unless this is
accomplished," he warned,
"American Zionists will not meet
their responsibilities."
