Committee to Seek Equal Rights for Soviet Jewry Formed in Israel

A public committee for Soviet Jewry was set up here today at a meeting held in Sokolow House in the presence of Chief Rabbi Isser Yehuda Unterman, Dr. Nahum Goldmann, president of the World Jewish Congress and representatives of various groups.

The new committee, it was stressed, was not an anti-Soviet one, but a group aimed at assuring to Soviet Jews all civil rights including the right to practice their religion and cultural activities.
