World Zionist Organization Expects 7,000 Yordim to Return to Israel

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
About 7,000 of the esti-
mated 300,000 Israelis
living abroad are ex-
pected to return to Israel
this year with the help of
the World Zionist Or-
ganization.
This was estimated in a
16-page report by a spe-
cial WZO unit dealing
with returning Israelis.
The unit is headed by Eli
Paz who is also the ad-
visor to Yosef Almogi,
chairman of the WZO
Executive.
The report, which was
discussed by the WZO
Executive last' week,
