World Jewish Congress Hopes Nuclear Test Ban Would Aid Russian Jews

Delegates to the conference of the executive committee of the World Jewish Congress, in session here since Sunday, approved unanimously today a resolution expressing hope that the apparent easing of East-West tensions might lead to equality of rights for Soviet Jews, as well as for all other peoples in the Soviet Union.

The resolution pinned the hopes for the future of the Jews of all countries on the nuclear test ban treaty. The resolution expressed the “continuing deep concern” of the organization over the plight of Soviet Jewry, and stressed the hope that the new international situation would bring rights and equality for all in Russia.
