New York Group Withdraws Bid for Separate Meeting with Khrushchev

The New York Board of Rabbis said today that it had requested the Soviet Embassy in Washington to cancel its request for a meeting with Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev during the Soviet leader’s visit to this country.

The Board’s action was taken “for the sake of Jewish unity” in the light of the concerted effort by 20 organizations participating in an ad hoc conference of Jewish organizations to secure a meeting between Mr. Khrushchev and a representative American Jewish delegation.
