Dr. Stern Sentenced to 8 Years
in 'Strengthened' Labor Camp

Hasidic Happening Due Tuesday

The seventh annual Hasidic
Happening concert will be
heard 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at
Ford Auditorium. Nathan P.
Rossen will be the honoree.
Chairmen are David Herme-
lin and Harold Beznos.
Opening the program will
be the internationally famed
baritone, Sidor Belarsky. Bel-
arsky is a close friend of the
honoree. The hasidic dancers
also are featured.

Highlighting the evening

Members of the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry
demonstrated recently at a performance of the Soviet
Georgian Dance Company in New ,York's Carnegie Hall.
They demanded the release of the Goldstein family and
other Tibllisi Jewish activists, and protested the trial of
noted endocrinologist, Dr. Mikhail Stern, right, in Vinnitsa,
the Ukraine. Dr. Stern was given an eight-year sentence
Monday for accepting bribes from patients, even though
seven of eight prosecution witnesses repudiated their
testimonies.

NEW YORK (JTA) — Dr.
Mikhail Stern, the Vinnitsa
Jewish doctor, was sentenced
Monday by a Ukrainian
court to an eight-year term
in a labor camp on charges
of bribe-taking and swindl-
ing, it was reported here
from Jewish sources in Mos-
cow.
The sources also reported
that David Axelbant, Dr.

Charges

Stern's
defense
attorney,
planed to appeal the sentence
which is to be served in a
"strengthened" regime camp,
the third most severe of four
categories. The prosecution
had demanded a nine-year
sentence.
Dr. Stern, 56, said, at his
sentencing, that he had a
completely clear conscience,
the Jewish sources said. The
trial began on Dec. 11, about
seven months after Dr. Stern
was arrested. Jewish sources
said at the time of the arrest
that the case was linked to
applications of Dr. Stern's
sons to emigrate to Israel
with Dr. Stern's own stated
wish to leave Russia.

The sentence also included
confiscation of all of Dr.
Stern's possessions. Dr.
Stern, who was head of the
polyclinic department of the
V i n n i t s a Endocrinological
Dispensary, was accused of
accepting favors in return
for declaring persons unfit
for military service, selling
medicines above cost and
other alleged crimes. He had
pleaded not guilty to all
charges.

It was recalled here that
KGB officials called in .a
number of Jewish activists to
Moscow on Dec. 23. The ac-
tivists were told that the
USSR had no intention of
yielding to foreign pressures
on emigration. ,
The sentence on Dr. Stern
was seen here as a demon-
stration of that Soviet posi-
tion following formal Soviet
denial of any "linkage" be-
tween U. S. trade and Soviet
emigration practices.

Rabbi Frain to Give
Predictions for '75

FolloWing a tradition now
50 years old, Rabbi Leon
Fram of Temple Israel, will
devote his sermon 8:30 p.m.
today, the first Friday night
of the new year, to a fore-
cast of the events of 1975.
The subject of his New
Year sermon will be "1975—
Threat or Promise?"
Among his predictions for
the coming year are: that
the United Nations will go
out of existence, to be re-
placed by a new organiza-
tion more capable of secur-
ing the peace of the world
and that the oil exporting
countries will over-play their
hand and drive the desperate
countries of Europe into a
confrontation with the oil
producers.
Another feature of the serv-
ice will be the appearance of
a female cantor, Miss Gail
Posner, who will substitute
for Cantor Harold Orbach,
who is on vacation. Miss Pos-
ner, a second-year student of
the school of sacred music
of the Hebrew Union College-
Jewish Institute of Religion,
will chant the cantorial
music.
Members of the congrega-
tion will participate in the
rendering of the Sabbath Eve
liturgy.

British Crisis
Caused by Photo?

WASHINGTON—A London
Times photo of British Prime
Minister Harold Wilson and
former Israel Prime Minister
Golda Meir in a friendly
bear-hug may have been the
cause of Britain's currency
crisis.
Financiers close to Saudi
Arabia cite King Faisal's out-
rage over the photograph as
the impetus for his declara-
tion that future oil payments
must be exclusively in dol-
lars, which caused the pound
to plummet to a new low.
Some British bankers said
the report is "far-fetched,"
but they had no other expla-
nation for Faisal's sudden
move.

will be a fusion of the old and
the new in Hasidism — the
Morristown Moving Spirits
group, led by Avrohom Le-
vine on the accordion and
drummer Dovid Lazerson.

Schneur Zalinan Polter, the
4-year-old "cantor," will of-
fer a selection of hasidic and
cantorial pieces, accomp-
anied by his brothers. Then a
tableau depicting "Jewish
Womanhood—the Light of the
Home" will be presented.
After the intermission, Can-
tor Avrohom Pressman will
render Russian and Israeli
hasidic numbers. The cantor,
a Russian emigrant, is pursu-
ing musical and Judaic stu-
dies at the Lubavitcher Yesh-
iva in New York.

Marvin Weinberger, a vio-
linist at University of Mich-
igan's music school, will ap-
pear as "Moshe and His Ha-
sidic Violin." Accompanied
by Steven Glaser, pianist,
Moshe will play "Shamil's
Nigun", a melody which tells
an hasidic story, "Hopp Cos-
sack", a Russian Kazatzka
dance melody, and other pop-
ular Jewish songs.

On Wednesday night, the
concert will be in Flint, un-
der the auspices of the Flint
Jewish Community Council;
on Thursday the Michigan
State University Jewish Com-
munity will be host to the
concert 7:30 p.m. in the Uni-
versity's engineering hall.
Final concert will be in Ann-
Arbor, honoring Osias Zwerd-
ling, 3 p.m. Jan. 12 in the
Lydia Mendlesohn Theater.
For information, call Rab-
bi Berel Shemtov, 398-2611.

Dutch Royal Family
Helps Synagogue

AMSTERDAM (JTA) —
The entire Dutch royal fam-
ily contributed to a fund set
up to restore the old Sephar-
di synagogue in The Hague
built in 1726.
The old Sephardi syna-
gogue was bought by The
Hague Liberal Jewish Con-
gregation several years ago
with the help of government
grants from a real estate
company.
In spite of active fund col-
lecting, it has been unable
to raise money needed to re-
store the building within its
own membership.
