A joint conference of the World Zionist Organization and the World Jewish Congress will be held here between Oct. 28 and Nov. 2 with some 400 delegates expected to attend. According to Dr. Lazaro Rubinson, chairman of the Argentine Zionist Organization, the conference will project Jewish policy in Latin America for the next 3-4 years.

Observers are expected from the United Hias Service, the American Jewish Committee, the International Council of Jewish Women and the World Union of Jewish Students. One of the community leaders expected is Moises Baldas, of Havana, Cuba.

An official of the Latin American Jewish Congress said at a press conference today that the emergency situation of Jews in Latin America is expected to persist for a long time. He said one of the projects to be initiated at the joint conference will be the inclusion of territorial Zionist federations within the Latin American Jewish Congress leadership.
