U.S. National Solidarity Day for Russian Jews on April 13

NEW YORK (JTA) — The \
National Conference on So-
viet Jewry and the Greater
New York Conference on
Soviet Jewry announced
that the fourth annual Na-
tional Solidarity Day for So-
viet'Jews will be held April
13.
Stanley H. Lowell, chair-
man of th National Confer-
ence, said that in addition to
major public events in New
York City, Washington,
D.C., Boston, Los Angeles
and 80 other cities across
the country, there will also
be observances in several
other countries.
Lowell said the reason for
the international observ-
ance is that "despite Soviet
claims that there are 'no
problems' in regard to the
freedom to leave, the emi-

gration of Soviet Jews de-
creased during the past
year.
"Potential emigrants
are still subject to arbi-
trary and punitive deci-
sions by Soviet officials
and Soviet Jews continue
to be incarcerated in labor
camps because they ac-
tively seek their right to go
to Israel."
Governor Hugh Carey
and Mayor Abraham Beame
proclaimed April 13, as
"Solidarity Sunday" in New
York in support of Soviet
Jewry. Carey and Beame
went to the Statue of Lib-
erty, where they unfurled a
30-foot long banner pro-
claiming solidarity with
Jews in the USSR.
August
Meanwhile,
Stern, one of the two sons of

Dr. Mikhail Stern, has ar-
rived in Tel Aviv with his
wife. He told reporters at
Ben-Gurion Airport that he
and his brother, Victor, who
is still in the USSR, would
continue their struggle to
gain their father's release
from a Soviet prison and his
emigration to Israel. Dr.
Stern of Vinnitsa, Ukraine,
is serving an eight-year
sentence for alleged bribery.
Dr. Stern's plight caused
the noted heart surgeon Dr.
Christian Barnard, and his
brother, Dr. Marius Bar-
nard, to comment last week:
"We are not prepared to be-
lieve that a man regarded as
a noted endocrinologist and
medical doctor will stoop to
the trivial and ridiculous
crimes alleged."

The National Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry also
reported that four of the 10
Moscow Jewish activists
who were arrested on Feb.
24 for demonstrating for
exit visas in Moscow were
sentenced to 15-day jail
terms on routine charges
of "hooliganism."

The NCSJ said three of
those arrested were released
but that two long time activ-
ists — Boris. Tsitlionok and
Mark Nashpitz — were
being held for trial. The
NCSJ said the decision was
a source of worry since all
the activists had been
charged with the same of-
fense. They fear that the
two men were being singled
out for special punishment.
