First Israeli Sailors to Land at Soviet Port Return to Haifa

Israeli sailors who set foot on Soviet soil for the first time earlier this month today returned from the port of Odessa where the S.S. Rimon delivered the first consignment of a 150,000-case order of Israeli citrus fruit. One member of the crew said that there were many Jews in Odessa but that when he went to synagogue on Saturday he found only 20 people there.
