(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Rabbi Schneursohn, leader of the Chassidic Chabbad school, known as the Lubowitscher Rebbe, received permission from the Soviet government to leave the country. The rabbi, who was permitted by the Latvian government to settle here, is expected to arrive tomorrow.

Some delay attended the granting of permission by the Soviet Government for the rabbi to leave the country.

Fifty students of the collegiate department of the Hebrew Union College, Cincinnati, O. conducted Rosh Hashanah services in fifty cities. The students were sent to communities as far south as Mississippi, and west to Arizona. The students will remain in the communities to which they were assigned until after Yom Kippur.
