Navon Postpones U.S. Visit

President Yithak Navon has postponed his visit to the United States as guest of the American Jewish community. He was scheduled to address more than 3000 North American Jewish leaders at the 47th General Assembly of the Council of Jewish Federations, which is being held Nov. B-12 in San Francisco.

It is understood that the postponement was due to the possibility that president Carter will visit the Middle East for the signing of the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt. Another reason for Navon’s decision was Premier Menachem Begin’s own visit to the U.S. this week.
