Middle Aged Moscow Jews Continue to Attend Synagogue Services

A good many Russian Jews attend services at the Great Synagogue in Moscow, althouth the congregation is composed chiefly of men and women over middle age, a two-man Israeli trade delegation which has just returned from Moscow reported today. The two Israelis attended services twice while in Moscow. The delegation signed a pact in Moscow December 4 to sell the Russians 20,000 tons of citrus products, part of which will be paid for by Soviet crude oil and part in goods which have not yet been chosen.
