Ben Gurion Studies Report on Moods of Jews in the Soviet Union

Download PDF for this date

Premier David Ben Gurion is studying a report on the possibilities of Jewish immigration from the Soviet Union brought home by the Israeli delegation to the recent Moscow youth festival, it was reported in the press today.

The report is said to point out that the desire to go to Israel is shared by Russian Jewish youth as well as the older generation of Jews. It is believed that since many Jewish youths have shown no desire to assimilate, the Soviet authorities may reverse their position and permit Israel-bound emigration.
