Jewish Leaders to Meet with Kissinger

Download PDF for this date

A delegation of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations will meet with Secretary of State Henry A, Kissinger tomorrow on the eye of Kissinger’s latest diplomatic mission to the Mideast. The delegation will be led by Rabbi Israel Miller, chairman of the Presidents Conference.

The Jewish leaders are expected to raise with Kissinger the need for Egyptian assurances of peaceful intentions toward Israel and specific actions toward that end. The size of the American aid package to Israel, the continuing plight of Syrian Jewry and the growing harassment of Jewish activists in the Soviet Union, along with a steady decline in the number of exit visas granted, are also likely to be raised by the delegation, it is believed.
