The conference of Jewish religious congregations in Soviet Russia, scheduled to take place in Leningrad on October 21, was postponed until November 21, the correspondent of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency here learns from Moscow.

The convenors of the conference had planned it to take place during the first week of October.
