Old Jewish Coins Record •of Soviet•Jewish Underground

Pinhas (formerly Pavel) Gilman,
JERUSALEM—"Silent No More,"
Collecting Volume a record
of Russian Jewish under- now 21, is one of the newly-arrived

Coin collectors and students of
the histories of many lands and
many ages, will be intrigued by
the interesting and fully illustrated
"Coins and Coin Collecting" by
Burton Hobson, published by
With all its thoroughness in many
areas, this volume has its major
shortcoming: it fails to include the
ancient Judean coins, and espe-
cially those of the era of Bar
Kokhba. •
There is a chapter entitled "Bib-
lical Coins," but it is entirely
Christological. It deals with coins
mentioned in the New Testament—
in Luke and Matthew, it describes
the "widcw's mite" coin in Mark.
The Christian and Roman factors
are introduced as follows: "One of
the Roman provinces was Judea,
and Octavian, the founder of the
Roman Empire, is well known to
bible students as Caesar Augustus
from whom in Luke 2:1: 'There
went out a decree .. . that all the
world should be taxed.' The tax
was payable in Roman coin and
the so-called 'penny' of the Bible
is really the standard Roman
denarius . . ."
But there were other coins, there
were coins of the rebellion against
Rome. They are missing from this
book's collection.

Dulzin Says Generals
Will Join Liberal Party

Dulzin, president of the World
Union of General Zionists, stated
in an interview in Haaretz, that
"a number of generals of Israel's
defepse forces are ideologically in
sympathy with the Liberal Party."
He noted that these officers are
expected to join the ranks of the
Liberal Party after completion of
their active military duty.
Dulzin also said that the new
olim "are not in favor of a so-
cialist regime, and also will sup-
port the liberal viewpoint."
Commenting on the current dis-
cussions with leaders of Herat,
Dulzin said that he does not see
any present possibility for the
Gahal bloc to replace the incum
bent regime. In his view, Gahal
must be broadened to include many
In conclusion, Dulzin said that if
present discussions with Herut
lead to a dissolution of the Gahal
bloc, then the Liberal Party, with
other liberal factions, will present
a slate for the next Knesset elec-
tions, confident of gaining greater
support than would Herut, standing

Some 60 Russian students who
had already been enrolled at uni-
versities in Russia and who immi-
grated to Israel after the start of
the academic year. were accepted
recently at .the Hebrew Univer-
sity's School for Overseas Students
on the Mount Scopus campus.
Some 45 Russian students who
arrived prior to the start of the
current academic year are en-
rolled at the university's center
for pre-academic studies, with
a further 41 enrolled in the reg-
ular freshman classes at the
university. There are_35 students

His fluent Hebrew was acquired
at the first ulpan to be set up in
Moscow, where it was run by Tal
Dekel (formerly Anatol Dekatov)
to whom the university awarded
the •othberg Prize at its convoca-
tion in July 1971. Gilman said that
the number of ulpanim has now in-
creased to some 20, and he esti-
mated that the total enrollment in
these underground classes num-
bers between 300 and 400 students.
According to Gilman, his father
is an all-out Communist who is not
interested in coming to Israel.
Thus Gilman is alone in the coun-
try. It was the influence of his
many Jewish friends which brought
to life his Jewish consciousness
and his relatively recently-found
Zionist philosophy.. A two-week
prison sentence in Moscow followed
his participation in a demonstra-
tion at the Supreme Court, when a
group of Russian Jews sought to
focus attention on their right to
emigrate to Israel:
Soon after being freed, he
received his exist visa, and a
few days later arrived at Lod
Airport. Most of his Jewish
friends from Moscow are by now
also in Israel.
He plans an academic career
as a specialist on relations between
various ethnic groups.
