A group of 250 Israel-bound Jews from Hungary–composed principally of aged women–left here for Venice where they will board a vessel for Haifa. This is the second contingent of Hungarian Jews permitted to emigrate under the terms of an Israel-Hungarian agreement providing for the transfer of 3,000 Jews to Israel.
