UIA Chairman Predicting
Difficult Future for Israel

NEW YORK (JTA) —
While the "trauma" of the
Yom Kippur War has
faded in Israel, "the Is-
raelis face a future of
lower incomes, higher
prices and the specter of
unemployment—the cost
of maintaining their life-
sustaining defense,"
Melvin Dubinsky told the
United Israel Appeal's
annual trustees meeting.
Dubinsky, who was
reelected UIA chairman,
observed that in the
months ahead, "the

The emigration of Jews
from the USSR continues
to be a major concern —
decisive action' must be
taken everything that
can be done must be done
to strengthen and en-
courage their quest for
freedom in the Jewish
homeland."
In the United States, he
noted, "the UIA serves as
a bridge to the Jewish
Agency for Israel for the
American Jewish com-
munity.
"Our growing involve-
ment was evidenced in
July by the participation
of the largest U.S. delega-
tion to the annual assem-
bly (of the Jewish Agency
in Jerusalem), in the
selection of a new chair-
man of the Executive and
the development of new
guidelines for our joint ef-
forts to aid immigration
and close the- social gap."

Hershkovitz Reports Daphna Tour
Plan for 3 000 Lutherans to Visit
Israel for Bible Studies in 1978

this one in size on a visit
to Israel was the United
Jewish Appeal's "This
Year in Jerusalem" tour
in October which had
3,500 participants.
Hershkovitz predicted
that Daphna Tours would
handle 4,000-5,000
tourists and $3 million in
business from the Mid-
west in 1977, including 40
groups from religious and
secular organizations.
He said many of Israel's
best accomodations are
booked nearly a year in
advance, indicating a
very good year for the Is-
rael tourism industry.
