Dinesh Singh, India's Minister of
State for External Affairs, assured

to a protest made by the ZOA last

Soviet Envoy Speaks
in D.C. Synagogue
on Jews' Opportunity'

Secretary Vladimir Bogachev of the
Soviet Embassy here told a meet-
ing held at Washington's Agudath
Achim Synagogue that, in some
fields, such as education and pro-
fessional advancement, Jews have
greater opportunity than any oth-
er national group in the USSR.
The Washington newspaper, The
Jewish Week, reported that Boga-
chev stated after the meeting that
Soviet Embassy speakers would ap-
pear before other Jewish groups
if invited to discuss Soviet policy
toward Jews. The newspaper point-
ed out that the meeting here was
not under auspices of the syna-
gogue but sponsored by a group
known as the Jewish Mutual Aid
Society, which is not affiliated with
the Jewish Community Council of
Greater Washington. A Community
Council spokesman said no previous
Soviet-Jewish meeting is known to
have occurred in the Washington
In his talk and in answers to
questions, the Soviet diplomat in-
sisted that Jews enjoy full rights
in the Soviet Union. He declined
to comment on a suggestion by
Dr. Alfred Henley, chairman of
the meeting, that the USSR move
"rapidly, enthusiastically, wide-
. ly and energetically to make up
to the Jews for their past mis-
The meeting was attended by
about 250 persons. Bogachev is at-
tached to the Soviet Embassy press
department, and is deputy chief edi-
tor of the magazine, Soviet Life.
Rabbi H. J. Waldman, of Agudath
Achim Synagogue, said "we heard
an official Russian position" at the
meeting and "no opinions were

The council charged Sunday in a
resolution that many American
Jews "unwittingly support Zionism
because Zionist political goals are
cloaked in humanitarian terms and
because our government's enforce-
ment of full disclosure of Zion-
ism's foreign-agent activities have
been inadequate."
Asserting that world Zionist or-
ganizations "seek to perfect the in-
voluntary identification of all Amer-
icans of Jewish faith with the na-
tionalism of the State of Israel,"
the resolution declared that the
council "has fully documented the
Israel-Zionist effort to impose upon
Americans of Jewish faith a second
nationality attachment, based upon
automatic inclusion of all Jews in
what Zionism regards as a "polit-
ical-ethnic entity" called 'the Jew-
ish people,' whose national center
is said to be the state of Israel."
