The Soviet Union plans to allow 280 Jewish families--about 1,000 people--to emigrate to Israel in April, a sharp increase from recent months, Israel radio reported. The broadcast quoted Yuri Stern, director of the Soviet Jewry Information Center, as saying that according to Moscow sources, the families have been told officially that they will receive emigration documents in a few days. Among them, he said, are several activists who have long been denied emigration.
