American Sect Seeks to Move to Israel for Permanent Settlement

The Israel Cabinet will decide at an early meeting on the application for admission of a group of 100 American members of the Subbotnik sect, a Christian group which observes Saturday as the Sabbath.

The Subbotniks came to the United States from Odessa and now reside in Texas. They applied to the Israel Consulate at Los Angeles for permission to emigrate to Israel.
