THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Leviev's Sentence Appealed;
Dr, Voronel Arrives in Israel

(Continued from Page 1)

to death on Dec. 9. Dr. Mor-
ris said, "The sentence flies
in the face of the detente
mood that the world eagerly
awaits to enhance the pros-
pects for peace."
The Greater New York
Conference on Soviet Jewry,
meanwhile, has expressed
deep concern over the failure
of the Soviet authorities to
live up to their public pledge
to allow Benjamin Levich
and his family to leave the
country at the end of this
year. Bronx Borough Presi-
dent Robert Abrams, a vice-
chairman of the GNYC, said
the Soviets had promised last
June that Levich, a scientist,
his wife, their two sons and
their wives could emigrate
by the end of 1974.

,

Abrams said he spoke to
the Levich family by phone
this week and found them
"deeply distressed" by the
authorities' abrogation of
their commitment. He said
that Levich told him they
might be able to leave by the
end of March but feared that
their visas might be invali-
dated.

In Tel Aviv, Prof. Alex-
ander Voronel, one of the
leading activists for Jewish
emigration from the Soviet
Union, arrived Monday with
his wife Nina, successfully
culminating a two-and-a-half
year struggle for their own
emigration rights.
The 44-year-old theoretical
physicist who, was' dismissed
from his job and stripped of
his academic prerogatives
when he first applied for an
exit visa in April, 1972,
landed at Ben-Gurion Airport
with a large group of Rus-
sian-Jewish emigres from
Vienna'.
They travelled in an Aus-
trian airliner owing to the
shut-down of El Al because
of a labor dispute.
A large group of Israeli
and emigre scientists were
at the airport to greet Prof.
Voronel. He was welcomed
by Prof. Yuval Ne'eman,
president of Tel Aviv Uni-
versity and himself an inter-
nationally prominent physi-
cist, who assigned a position
to Voronel on the university
faculty a year ago.

President Nixon was in Mos-
cow, was prevented from
taking place by Soviet au-
thorities who sealed Vor-
onel's flat and arrested who-
ever sought entry to it.

Voronel told reporters at
the airport that the seminars
were part of the struggle for
emigration and had proved
effective. "Instead of us
fearing the KGB it was the
KGB that feared the activi-
ties of Jewish scientists," he
said.

Voronel was offered an
exit visa last month on con-
dition that he end the semi-
nars. He told the Soviet au-
thorities that was not in his
power and that other ac-
tivists would take over the
weekly meetings.
He was nevertheless al-
lowed to depart. Voronel said
that he hoped his colleague,
Prof. Mark Ashbel, would
continue to organize and
conduct the meetings.

Golda Receives
Honorary Degree

WASHINGTON — Former
Israel Prime Minister Golda
Meir received an honorary
Doctor of Laws degree from
the University of Rochester
at a ceremony in her honor,
marking the establishment
of the Philip S. Bernstein
Professorship 'in Jewish Stu-
dies.
Rabbi Bernstein, for many
years the spiritual leader at
Temple Brith Kodesh in Kg-
chester, served as chairman
of the American Israel Pub-
lic Affairs Committee from
1954 to 1968.

Voronel's son, a mathe-
matics student who , lives in
Jerusalem, was also at the
airport.

Voronel's case was brought
to world-wide attention when
he organized scientific semi-
nars at his Moscow apart-
ment to enable other dis-
missed Jewish scientists to
keep up with the latest de-
velopments in their fields.
Voronel freely admitted
that another purpose was to
bring the plight of Jewish
academicians and intellec-
tuals to the attention of
world opinion. His seminars
were constantly harassed by
the KGB.
One such gathering, sched-
uled last July when former

Factors that have kept
India from severing relations
with Israel are public opin-
ion, a yearning by the gov-
ernment to maintain some
leverage regarding Israel at
international forums, some
economic links and a lack of
direct pressure from the
Arab nations.

as "an aggressor nation" and
