'From Slavery Into Freedom'

Russian Miss to Taste 1st U.S. Matzo

Mrs. Bek could not explain why
the Soviet government finally per-
mitted the family to leave the
Speaking through an inter-

p r e t e r, she explained that
under Soviet law a child could
not be taught his religion till
he was 16 years old. Consequent-
ly, she added, Halina had only
the haziest ideas of what being
Jewish was or meant.

Halina Bek, a 19-year-old stu-
dent at Yeshiva University's
Stern College for Women, will
taste American-made matzo for
the first time in her life at Pass-
over. Miss Bek and her family
are among the few legal emi-
gres from the Soviet Union.

A 19-year-old student at Yeshiva

University's Stern College for
Women, Halina Bek of Krasno-
don, the Ukraine, will taste Amer-
ican-made matzo for the first time
in her life this Passover.
Miss Bek, one of the few legal
emigres from the Soviet Union,
arrived in New York City last
June with her parents, Lena and
Gershon Bek, and a younger bro-
ther, Misha.
For years, Mrs. Bek said, she
had been baking her own matzoth
—and had been trying to leave the
Soviet Union.
"At first I tried to go to Poland
or Czechoslovakia because I
thought it would be easier to get
permission to go to these coun-
tries. I never dreamed that we
would be permitted to go to the
United States."

in Krasnodon in 1963. Although her
courses of study included physics,
astronomy, chemistry, and bio-
logy, she was trained as a seam-
stress, third class.
For a time, Halina said, she
worked in a chemical factory
while she studied at night to pre-
pare for examinations to enter a
night institute. Then came the
news that they were granted per-
mission to leave the country.
Halina, who is described as
"very ambitious" by her teachers,
is continuing with studies in
chemical engineering.
She is also taking a -full pro-
gram of religious studies and is
registered at Brooklyn College in
a class for foreigners, which she
attends two nights a week.
