On the 6th day the war ended

OntheTth In 6 violent days the people of Israel courageously defended their land and civilization. But no sooner did one war subside than anOther began. A war of continuous border attacks. Of surprise and deadly sabotage. A war in which fanners must protect their lives while tending their sheep. Israel pours out all her resources, giv*es all her effort to protect )ier people. And while she does, her peopjeaye-faced with human

crises within her borders. The more than 300,000 immigrants who must be absorbed, fed, clothed and housed. Who must be educated, retrained and given jobs. Whose sick, handicapped and aged must be cared for. The United Jewish Appeal asks you never to forget that as long as the war that started on the 7th day continues, people in Israel need your help. More than ever before. Israel must live.
