Plans to enable Russian Jewry to resume contact they lost with Jews of other countries after the outbreak of the Soviet revolution some 25 years ago are now being formulated in Moscow by a Jewish committee organized there as a result of the recent great Jewish really in the Soviet capital, it was reported here today.

The Jewish committee is now engaged in working out the future policy of Soviet Jewry, the report states. The committee has, among other things, approached the Soviet authorities with a suggestion that they abstain from anti-religious propaganda and has succeeded in securing the suspension of atheist activities, the first time this Rosh Hashanah no anti-religous campaign was conducted in Soviet Russia.
