The delegation of American Jewish Committee leaders which is now touring Latin American countries arrived here this week-end, and was honored at a dinner attended by more than 300 prominent Jews and non-Jews.

The delegation, which is headed by Irving Engel, AJC president, and Jacob Blaustein, honorary president, will be received by President Juscelino Kubitschek of Brazil, probably tomorrow. Israel Ambassador Arieli Aroch tendered a luncheon in honor of the delegation, which was attended by the Jewish community leaders.
