Rumania May Permit Emigration of 60,000 Jews, Jewish Leader Reports

The Rumanian Government is expected to permit some 60,000 Jews to leave for Israel, it was reported here today by A.L. Zisu, one of the four Rumanian Jewish leaders who arrived here for permanent settlement last week.

Mr. Zisu said that there are signs that the Rumanian Government has changed its attitude toward Jewish emigration. It appears willing to permit the reunification of families some of whose members are already in Israel. The estimated 60,000 are in this category.
