The World Jewish Congress will convene in Jerusalem for a two-day session starting Tuesday next week.

Dignitaries in attendance will include Holocaust survivor and Nobel prize-winning author Elie Wiesel, two-term former Spanish prime minister Jose Maria Azner, President Shimon Peres and most of Israel's top political leaders.
