30 Congressmen Adopt Soviet Jews

NEW YORK (JTA) — The
Greater New York Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry has
launched a major campaign
to seek the release of Sov-
iet "Prisoners of Con-
science." Thirty Republican
and Democratic congress-
men from New York City,
Long Island, Westchester,
and Rockland Counties each
adopted one of the prison-
ers and pledged to work in
his behalf.
At a press conference
launching the campaign,
Eugene Gold, conference
chairman, said that he be-
lieved that the release of
Sylva Zalmanson, who ar-
rived in Israel last week
after serving four years of
her 10-year sentence, "is the
direct result of the concern
and interest of the American
public at large and espec-
ially members of Congress"
who worked for her release.

He said that while the con-
ference welcomes the nego-
tiations between the United
States and the Soviet Union
about the emigration issue,
public pressure cannot be re-
laxed because even as nego-
tiations are going on Soviet
harassment of Jews who
wish to emigrate to Israel is
continuing.
Rep. Hugh L. Carey (D-
NY), who won the Democra-
tic Party's nomination for
governor of New York, said
Congress "will not give
materials and goods to the
Soviet Union" until she al-
lows every person who
wishes to emigrate to do so.
He said the New York con-
gressional committee will
meet with Sen. Henry M.
Jackson (D-Wash,) and Rep.
Wilbur D. Mills (D-Ark.),
the formulators of the Jack-
son/Mills - Vanik legislation
which would deny trade and
credits to the Soviet Union
until Jews and others are al-
lowed unhampered emigra-
tion.
Carey, who has adopted
prisoner losif Mendelevich,
said Secretary of State Henry
A. Kissinger must make the
position of Congress clear to
the Soviet Union.
Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman
(D.-NY), who adopted Yuri
Vudka, said notice must be
given to the Ford Adminis-
tration that "we will not give
an unconditional pardon to

Survey Shows
East Europeans
Support Israel

NEW YORK — Although
most of their governments
maintain a strongly pro-
Arab position, ordinary citi-
zens in East European coun-
tries overwhelmingly sympa-
thize with Israel in the con-
tinuing Middle East conflict.
This view was made public
by the American Jewish
Committee, based on a re-
port by its Paris office. The
report in turn was based on
a survey conducted by Radio
Free Europe among 1,826
East European visitors in the
West between October 1973,
and February 1974.
The report shows that 45
per cent of those queried said
that they favored Israel in
the conflict, 11 per cent were
for the Arabs, and the re-
mainder were uncommitted.
The study added that "this
was one of several such stu-
dies done by RFE since the
1967 war, all showing a con-
sistent trend in favor of Is-
rael."
The AJC analysis made the
point that this pro-Israel at-
titude was evident despite
the fact that official polity
in the Communist states fav-
ored the Arabs; none of the
countries, except Romania,
maintained diplomatic rela-
tions with Israel; and that all
newspapers, radio and tele-
vision stations in the coun-
tries followed a strict pro-
Arab line.

the Soviet Union" until it
frees, the prisoners and al-
lows Soviet Jews and others
to emigrate.
Rep. Ogden R. Reid (D.-
NY), who adopted Mikhail
Kornblit, said the "United
States will never prefer ec-
onomic expediency over hu-
man rights."
Both Carey and Reid also
urged efforts on behalf of
Syrian and Iraqi Jews. Car-
ey said all the Jews in Syria
were "prisoners." Gold, in
noting that Soviet harass-
ment of Jews was continuing,
singled out the case of Vi-
taly Rubin, a 50-year-old sin-
ologist who was taken from
his sick-bed and charged
with "parasitism," and Ela-
hu Essas, a 27-year-old rab-
binical student in Moscow,
who was abruptly ousted
from school after applying
for an exit visa.
The new campaign will in-
volve each Congressman
keeping in constant touch
with the State Department
and the Soviet Union on the
condition of the adopted pris-
oner.
There will be various pro-
grams in each congressional
district including setting
aside a "place of honor" in
churches and synagogues for
the prisoner and the renam-
ing of public places for the
prisoner.
The other New York con-
gressmen present at the
press conference and their
adopted prisoners are: Rep.
Bella Abzug, Piotr Pinkha-
sov; Rep. Mario Biaggi, Ed-
uard Kuznetsov (Sylva Zal-
manson's husband); Rep.
Jonathan Bingham, Boris Az-
ernikov; Rep. Hamilton Fish, -
Isak Shkolnik; Rep. Benja-
min Gilman, David Cherno-
glaz; Rep. Norman Lent,
Hillel Butman; and Rep.
Peter Peyser, Aleksandr
Feldman.
