Moses A. Leavitt, executive vice-president of the American Joint Distribution Committee, arrived here today after a visit to the Congo to investigate the situation of the Jewish community in the strife-wracked African republic.

He described business in Lcopoldville as being at a complete standstill. He said he had met with Congolese Jewish refugees in Rhodesia and planned to meet others here to complete his investigation of the Jewish situation.
