THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS Friday, November 1, 1974-13


If the tradition of including the Jewish
National Fund in the. Will of every Jew were
invariably followed, sufficient resources would
be accumadated to ensure the future of the
young Jewish State on a sound basis of land
development, social welfare, and justice.

A bequest to the Jewish National Fund
should be as traditional as having a Blue Box
in one's home.


You may want your bequest to b'e dedicated
to. afforestation, to a village, a Nachlah, to a
children's play area, to perpetual yahrzeit or
kaddish,' or to some form of permanent tribute
in the names of persons dear to you.

Consult the Foundation for Jewish National
Fund, 22100 Greenfield, 968-0820. They will
gladly co-operate with you in working out
plans to meet your Special requirements, in
strict privacy.

Harassed Soviet Jewish Engineer
Dreams of Sending Sons to Bar-Ilan

RAMAT-GAN—In Novosi-
birsk, in southern Siberia,
500 miles north of Mongolia,
a skilled mechanical engi-
neer, forced to work as -a
draftsman, is dreaming of
coming to Israel and Re day
sending his two sons to study
at Bar-Ilan University here.
The engineer, Alexander
Roisman, and his family
heard of the university
through Dr. Ira Hammerman
of New York, who has recent-
ly come- to 'Israel to lecture
in biophysics at Bar-Ilan. He
heard of the Roismans when

he wrote to five Jewish scien-
tists who were having _diffi-
culty in getting exit permits
from Russia. The only one
who replied was Roisman,
and they have been corres-
ponding for. 11/2 years.
Roisman and his family
have been struggling alone to
rediscover their Judaism and
for three years to gain per-
mission to leave Russia.
Since applying he has lost his
engineering job and his wife,
Raiza, a surgeon, and his
sons have been harassed.
Roisman, himself, has painful


It is true that Lou Myles suits, which come from. Toronto, have smaller armholes than
any ordinary suit you've ever seen. In fact, the Lou Myles suits we sell have less
material everywhere, so there's no extra material to make either you or your suit look
- bulky or baggy. We buy Lou Myles suits because we think they fit and look better than
any ordinary suit. You can buy Lou Myles suits only one place in Michigan—at Van Dyke
Clothiers in Warren—no matter what size your arms are.

nied it. Dr. Kibbee issued his
report after several groups
charged that the accelerated
medical training program_
was giving preference to
black and Hispanic appli-
cants regardless of academic
The ADL made that charge
July 12, after Forster de-
manded in a letter to Alfred
A. Giardino, chairman of the
board of higher education,
that the center for biomedi-
cal education admit "highly
qualified" applicants w h o
were excluded because they
are white.
Forster referred at t h e
time to Dr. Kibbee's report
and to "information obtained
through our own investiga-
tion of the program" which,
he said, established that "all
too frequently considerations
of race dominated the admis-
sions procedure."
He pointed out that the se-
lection procedures had re-
sulted in the September 1974
class consisting of 27 whites
and 41 "minority" students.
He said that replacement for
those who declined to accept
places in the program was
made along strictly racial
lines—"black for black and
white for white."

gallstones, but is afraid to
enter a Soviet hospital.
The Soviet authorities claim
that Reisman has had access
to secret research and thus
cannot be allowed to emi-
grate, in spite of documents
that Roisman has proving
he never had such access.
The Roismans are deter-
mined to live in Israel as Or-
thodox Jews. In a letter Rois-
man, who has had no reli-
gious training, wrote: "Dear
friend, you have sent me a
treasure—the Haggada.
"The Jewish tradition was
interrupted almost every-
where in Russia many years
ago . . . We had to learn
everything anew. I had read
the Bible (in Hebrew) with
the help of a Hebrew diction-
ary. This work took about
five years. I made this work
alone, without a teacher, even
without some parallel text
(translation) .. .
"Then I set to study the
prayers. I understand them,
but I cannot read fluently.
Though I didn't ever see a
Passover Seder I had re-
stored one for our family."
