Shamir to Meet Top U.S. Leaders, Jewish Leaders, Congregants

Israel Premier Yitzhak Shamir has four-plus days of meetings scheduled with national leaders and rank-and-file Jews in the United States this week.

He will meet with President Reagan at the White House Friday. Shamir, who is scheduled to arrive here Thursday night from Miami, where he will address the annual General Assembly of the Council of Jewish Federations, will go from the White House to the State Department for a luncheon meeting with Secretary of State George Shultz.

The two official meetings will be followed Friday afternoon by an address sponsored by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

The Israeli premier, who has asked to meet with a cross-section of the Washington Jewish community, also is scheduled to speak at B’nai Israel Congregation, in Rockville, Md., on Saturday night. The event is sponsored by the United Jewish Appeal Federation of Greater Washington and the Jewish Community Council of Greater Washington.

Shamir will leave for New York Sunday afternoon, where he will address students at Queens College and be honored at a dinner that night by the Zionist Organization of America.

On Monday, Shamir is scheduled to address the Greater New York Board of Rabbis, the Foreign Policy Association and the Conference of Presidents of American Jewish Organizations before leaving for Israel Monday night.
