February 4, 1982
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Leon Dulzin, chairman of the Jewish Agency and World Zionist Organization Executives, told a press conference here that the Third Brussels World Conference on Soviet Jewry will be held at the end of October, probably either in Paris or London. Dulzin, who is also the chairman of the World Conference, said that the third conference, unlike the first two, could not be held again in Brussels because of shortage of hotel and meeting place accommodations for the time of the meeting that was set last week in Washington at the World Conference presidium’s meeting.

Since the first World Conference in 1971, which coordinated world opinion, some 260,000 Jews have emigrated from the Soviet Union, with 185,000 settling in Israel, Dulzin said.
