orary President (Knesset
Speaker Yitzhak Shamir),
former Detroit singer.
Emma Schaver, and a social
committee.
The zimria is financed by
the Israeli government, the
Jewish Agency and
municipalities. The budget
for the 11th Zimria is esti-
mated at IL 2.5 million.
At the same time, prep-
arations are made for the
International Harp Contest
for the year 1979. In these
contests the best harpists of
the world take part. The
jury consists of the greatest
composers and musicians. It
will be the seventh contest
of this kind. •
The founder of the zim-
ria was the late Ahron Zvi
Propes, who had studied
in the Conservatorium in
Prague. Already in Riga,
before coming to Eretz
Yisrael before the Second
World War, he was
dreaming about organiz-
ing international festi-
vals of Jewish choirs of
all over the world in Eretz
Yisrael. In 1935, he came
to Eretz Yisrael and im-
mediately organized a
committee headed by the
poet, Dr. Yacov Cohen.

But only after -the estab-
lishment of the state of Is-
rael did he succeed in or-
ganizing the first Zimria.
Afterwards he organized
the International Music
Festivals in Israel.

Hearty Greetings on
the New Year
to Family and Friends
and to the Entire
Community

May the year 5739 mark the fulfillment of hopes
for peace for Israel, the Middle East and all
mankind.

This is a year of dedication to the causes
which assure security for our people, which are
dedicated to provide for the needs cf the less
fortunate in our midst. On a global basis the
United Jewish Appeal rates high in guarante-
eing aid and comfort for seekers of security in
Israel and other areas of the world.

Culturally and spiritually, we join in urging the
retention of highest standards in providing
knowledge in our schools and universities. We
dedicate ourselves anew to the tasks provided
by Bar-Ilan University in Israel.

May our aspirations to attain human values
for all be realized in the coming year.
Dr. and Mrs. Leon Fill
and Family
