Jewish Leadership of Chile Calls on Soviet Government to End Anti-jewish Campaign

The leadership council of the Jewish community of Chile, representing numerous institutions and civic organizations, adopted a resolution at its meeting here protesting the anti-Jewish campaign by the Soviet government and declaring its solidarity “with our brothers in the USSR.” The resolution called on the Soviet government to allow those Jews who wish to emigrate to Israel to do so and to provide those Jews who wish to remain in the Soviet Union with facilities and opportunities to enjoy their culture in Yiddish and Hebrew. “Finally, we call upon the government to end its anti-Jewish campaign which has taken the guise of a campaign against Zionism,” the resolution declared.
