Second Group of American Rabbis Permitted to Visit Soviet Union

Another group of six American rabbis, representing Reform and Conservative congregations, have been granted Soviet visas, it was announced today. Led by Rabbi Morris Kertzer of New York, director of religious activities of the American Jewish Committee, the group will be permitted to visit the USSR, for the purpose of studying Jewish religious life there, the announcement said. Similar permission was given last week to a group of American Orthodox rabbis.
