101 Jews Left the USSR in March

One hundred and one Jews were allowed to leave the Soviet Union last month, it was reported here by the Soviet Jewry Research Bureau of the National Conference on Soviet Jewry. This figure represents a 20 percent decline from the number of Jews permitted to leave the USSR in February and brings the total for the first quarter of 1983 to 307 people — the lowest quarterly figure since 1968, the Research Bureau said.
