NEW YORK (JTA)—A possible
confrontation between the Student,
Struggle for Soviet Jewry and the
;Mai Brith over the issue of in-
volvement in the plight of Soviet
Jews has developed into an at least
temporary ceasefire.
Fifteen of the students walked
into the Bnai Brith office here
June 26 following an all-night vigil
at the Isaiah Wall across from
United Nations headquarters and
sought to speak with officials there
over what they termed insufficient
Bnai Brith activity on behalf of
Soviet Jewry.
They conferred for two hours with
!Mai Brith executives representing
the Anti-Defamation League, the
final Brith district office and the
affiliated Academic Committee for
Soviet Jewry. Both sides report
that a degree of mutual under-
standing was reached.
Glen Richter, coordinator of the
"Student Struggle, called the meet-
ing "very constructive." He told
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
the Bnai Brith officials indicated
they would seek greater Bnai Brith
activity on behalf of Soviet Jews.
The student vigil near the UN
was held to protest the arrests,
raids and searches of Jews in sev-
eral Soviet cities in connection
with an alleged Jewish hijacking
attempt of a plane at the Lenin-
grad airport June 15.

the arrest of the "Leningrad 8."

Mel Klarfeld, Bnai Brith asso-
ciate director for lodge services,
told the JTA that he and his col-
leagues had advised the students
that it had taken out such ads, but
that a regular Soviet Jewry news-
letter and the mailing of special
appeals would be "very costly."
(Bnai Brith now publishes a "Na-
tional Jewish Monthly" and a
monthly "Metropolitan Star.")

Klarfeld said Bnai Brith had
indicated to the students that "we
are keeping abreast of the situa-
tion," and that his organization
had arranged for the students to
meet separately with the national
ADL. He told the JTA he recog-
nized that the students are "a little
frustrated" over repression of
Soviet Jews.
Both spokesmen reported agree-
ment on relating the students' re-
quests to top Bnai Brith officials.
Richter said the executives at the
meeting had promised "intensive
thinking" about special-action com-
mittees, although Klarfeld noted
the budgetary limitations.

Their letter, dated April 2 and
made public Monday, character-

assertions that all "Soviet citizens
of Jewish descent" protest Israel's
support of emigration demands.
"The participants of this campaign
purport to speak on behalf of all
the Jews living within the borders
of the Soviet Union, but have no
right to do so," the letter said.
The signers identified themselves
as Lev Smuelovitch Shenkar, Ana-
