Herzog visits Bahais

visit to the Bahai Temple and ad-
ministrative headquarters of the
Bahai faith in Haifa, expressing
his solidarity with the members of
that faith persecuted in Iran.

of his other spare time to member-
ship enrollment in the United

priorities for Jewish educational
In support of these causes, he
joined with leading Zionists, in

ing home singing groups, all with
the aim of advancing the Zionist
cause and Hebrew education.
