Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger announced today that he will go to Israel in two weeks. Weinberger made the announcement at a briefing for some 100 Jewish leaders participating in the United Jewish Appeal’s third annual Hineni national leadership conference.

He said he had accepted an invitation extended by Israeli Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin and would go to Israel after attending a NATO meeting in Italy next week. According to Weinberger, it will be his first visit to Israel in two years.
