The Soviet Union allowed 892 Jews to emigrate in November, the highest monthly figure in six years, the Intergovernmental Committee for Migration in Geneva said. So far this year, 7,143 Jews have been permitted to leave the country, according to figures compiled by the group. This is up sharply from the last few years, when emigration has hovered at about 1,000 or fewer. Committee spokeswoman Regina Boucault said that so far this year, 1,767 Jews have resettled in Israel, with the remaining 5,376 choosing to live in other countries. In November, 211 of the emigres went to Israel.
