Zionist Head Almogi Says
Aliya Best Way to Help Israel

a Rosh Hashana message to
world Jewry, World Zionist
Organization Executive
chairman Yosef Almogi
called for aliya as "the best
and most fruitful way to
exercise influence" on the
ongoing development of
Israeli society.
"Nobody would claim that
Israel is free from defect,"
Almogi wrote. But "Zionists
can and should exert an
influence on the shape of an
Israeli society—press for
the elimination of abuses,
strive towards the full
achievement of social jus-
tice and the embodiment of
fundamental Jewish values
in that society.
"The best and most fruit-
ful way to exercise that
influence is through a large-
scale voluntary aliya from
the free world. That respon-
sibility must not be evaded
by the Zionist movement."
Reviewing prospects for
the year ahead, Almogi
stated: "In view of the
financial power and politi-
cal influence of the Arab
world, Israel more than
ever depends upon both the
financial and moral support
of world Jewry, not only to
ensure Israel's security and

continued development, but
to foster an understanding
of the true objectives of
Zionism and to prevent the
erosion of general public
sympathy for the Jewish
state throughout the enlight-
ened world.
"Second only to the prob-
lem of Israel's security—
and ultimately having asig-
nificant bearing upon it —is
the problem of assimilation
in the free world. The Zion-
ist movement will have
failed in one of its primary
responsibilities if it cannot
stimulate Jewish commu-
nities everywhere to pro-
vide a really adequate Jew-
ish education for their
