An organized group of Jews will shortly leave Portugal for Israel for the first time since the establishment of the new state, it was reported today. Dr. S. Glanzmann, Jewish Agency representative for Spain and Portugal, made the arrangements. The contingent will comprise some 30 Jews, most of whom came originally from Poland.
