Colonial Secretary Lord Lloyd is receiving a delegation of the Agudath Israel, Jewish religious organization, to discuss transfer of Polish rabbis and religious seminary students now in Lithuania to Palestine, it was learned today.

The Rabbinical Association of America has cabled an offer to guarantee $75,000 for maintenance of the seminaries if they are transferred to Palestine. The Agudath Israel here believes that Soviet Russia will permit transit of the refugees.
