Successful Campaign for Soviet Jew
Spurs Another Drive for Compatriot

With one victory to give
them a boost, the Flint Jew-
ish community is embarking
on another campaign on be-
half of a Soviet Jewish fam-
ily seeking to emigrate to
Back from a trip to Israel,
the new Jewish Community
Council executive director,
Richard Krieger, and the
president of the council,
Michael Pelavin, reported on
an emotional meeting with a
50-year-old Soviet Jew who
had just made aliya.
Gregori Teitelbaum, his
wife and 18-year-old son had
been befriended — via long-
distance communications —
by the Flint Jewish commu-
nity and others in the U.S.
Krieger himself had made
direct contact witth Teitel-
baum when the former was
visiting in Russia last Octo-
Pelavin, in Israel to lead

a seminar in contemporary
Jewish history sponsored by
the Young Leadership Cabi-
net of the United Jewish Ap-
peal, said members of the
cabinet also had worked to
win the release of the Teitel-
b a um s.
During the campaign, they
had talked long-distance with
him and distributed identi-
fication bracelets bearing his
name. They also promoted
letter writing.
Teitelbaum, a photojourna-
list who lost his job after
applying for an exit visa
two years ago, was notified
less than a month ago that
he had one week to sell all
his belongings, pay the fees
and get out of the country.
The call came to Pelavin's
office, where Krieger was
talking to Pelavin at the
time. The Americans prom-
ised to buy Teitelbaum cam-
era equipment (on a loan

basis) to replace what he
had to sell for food. Krieger
also returned to the photo-
grapher hundreds of nega-
tives which he had taken
over the years. Krieger took
them out of Russia for safe-
keeping after his visit n
Now he is leading the fight
for another Sovet Jew, Vic-
tor Fairmark, 31, a chemist
who was expelled from the
university where he is doing
postgraduate work. Like
Teitelbaum, Fairmark and
his family have been harass-
ed since he applied for a
visa in November 1971.
Similar pressure, includ-
ing the distribution of ID
bracelets and phone calls
will take place within a
month, said Krieger.
