Chief Rabbi Denies Arranging Meeting
of Conservative Rabbis, Soviet Aide
NEW YORK (JTA)—Chief Rabbi
Yehuda Leib Levin of Moscow has
categorically denied a report that
he arranged a meeting on July 26
in Moscow between a delegation of
visiting American Conservative
rabbis and an official of the So-
viet Council for Religious Affairs,

gregations of America said.
Rabbi Wolfe Kelman, executive
vice president of the Rabbinical
Assembly of America, who headed
the delegation which met with
Michail Kadikoff, the Soviet offi-

meeting had been arranged by
Rabbi Levin and that the official
had indicated that the Soviet gov-
ernment would have no objections
to invitations to Russian syna-
gogues to affiliate with the World
Council of Synagogues, which is
under Conservative sponsorship.
Rabbi Joseph Karasick, UOJCA
president; said he had been inform-

Rabbi Pinchas Teitz of Elizabeth,
N. J. Rabbi Teitz was a companion
of Chief Rabbi Levin during the

United States. Rabbi Karasick
added that Rabbi Levin, in an
overseas telephone conversation
with Rabbi Teitz, asked Rabbi
Teitz to convey his denial to the

According to Rabbi Karasick,
Rabbi Levin also said that his
sole contact with the Conserva-
tive rabbis was to receive them
as a formal courtesy during
their Moscow visit, "as is his
practice with overseas Jewish
visitors in general," and that "he
