I could not
ny my heritage.
When a Soviet Jew applies for an exit visa, he closes the door
to his past. When he decides to declare himself a Jew he risks
any further advancement in his career. His desire to live as a
Jew becomes an all encompassing need.
He knows that fulfillment may be months, even years
away. Maybe never. But he has made a commitment to himself
and to his heritage. He cannot turn back.
He comes to Israel with hope, determined to build a new
life. We must see that he has the opportunity to adapt his old
skills to new demands, that his children receive a proper edu-
cation, that he has a decent place to live. Let us match the
courage of the Soviet immigrants to Israel, Let us open the door
to their future .. .
keep the promise
