Soviets Bar Jewish Lawyer From World Parley in U.S.

The Soviet government has
refused to allow Vladimir
Lazaris, a Jewish lawyer in
Moscow, to attend the
World Conference on Peace
Through Law currently
being held here.
Lazaris, whose wife and

child are in Israel, was in-
vited to attend by a cable
personally sent to him by
Charles S. Rhyne, president
of the World Peace Through
Law Center in Washington,
which arranged the confer-
ence, and who also is a for-
mer president of the Ameri-
can Bar Association.
Lazaris replied that he re-
gretted his inability to at-
tend since the Soviet author-
ities would not grant him an
exit visa.
The case of Lazaris, who
was dismissed from his law
practice in Moscow for ask-
'ing to emigrate to Israel,
was presented to the panel
concerned with the right to
leave one's own country, by
Alan Gould, of Berkeley,
Calif., and William I. 1Viller,
a Queen's Counsel in Mon-
treal. Four Communist
countries — Poland, Bul-
garia, Romania and Yugos-
lavia — but not the Soviet
Union — are among the 129
countries represented at the

Meanwhile, the Israeli

delegation introduced two
resolutions at the confer-
ence relating to freedom of
emigration and effective
opposition to political ter-

One Israeli resolution
calls for the right of any
person to leave any country,
including his awn, and to
take his personal property
with him. In addition, it
calls for a ban on any coun-
try which subjects any per-
son desiring to exercise this
right, to sanctions, penal-
ties, harassment or humilia-
tion. The other Israeli reso-
lution, against terrorism for
political ends, recommends
strengthening of interna-
tional c000peration on pros-
ecution and punishment or
effective extradition.
It was learned in New
York that Lev Roitburd,
whose appeal was rejected
by the Odessa regional
court, is due to be trans-
ferred frofn the local jail to
a labor camp. The National
Conference on Soviet Jewry
said his lawyer intends to

Meanwhile, Secretary of
the Treasury William H.
Simon has voiced "deep con-
cern" over a new 30 percent
tax that the Soviet Union
plans to impose Jan. 1 on all
currency transfers to Soviet
citizens from abroad, it was
reported by the Conference
of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organiza-

Rabbi Israel Miller,
chairman of the Confer-
ence, released the text of a
letter from Simon stating
that the American Em-
bassy in Moscow was
"making . . . inquiries"
into the tax and that the
Treasury Department was
"looking into it care-

In another development a
Russian Jew has enrolled at
Yeshiva University with the
intention of returning to the
Soviet Union to teach and
serve Moscow's Jewish com-
Jakov Ryklin, 30, and on a
one-year visitor's permit to
the U.S., has enrolled at the
university's Erna Michael
College of Hebraic Studies.
Courses are taught in the
Hebrew language.
Ryklin was given permis-
sion by the Soviet Union to
visit his family living in For-
est Hills, Queens.

Having heard about
Yeshiva University's
teaching programs from
Rabbi Pinchus Teitz of
Elizabeth, N.J., while in
Russia, 'he decided that
during his year's stay he
would study at the school
and at the same time take
outside instruction with
Rabbi Teitz in shehita
(ritual slaughtering) and
mila (circumcision). Rabbi
Teitz is a frequent visitor
to the Soviet Union.

In Philadelphia, newly
elected officers of the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet

Jewry reaffirmed their com-
mitment to the struggle of
Soviet Jewry, in a statement
issued at Independence
The statement read by
Stanley H. Lowell, re-
elected chairman of the
NCSJ, in the ceremony wit-
nessed by hundreds of Jew-
ish community leaders from
across the United States,
pointed out, "Today in our
Bicentennial Year, our
brothers and sisters in the
Soviet. Union are continually
denied their rights; their
lives subject to cons'tant
harassment, surveillance
and discrimination from the
Soviet authorities."
Even as the ceremony was
taking place, reports from
Moscow stated that Ernst
Neizvesty, one of the Soviet
Union's best-known graphic
artists and sculptors, ap-
pealed to President Nikolai
Podgorny for permission to
emigrate to Israel. The art-
ist, who won worldwide at-
tention in 1962 when he
publicly quarreled with Ni-
kita Khrushchev over mod-
ern art, asked for. Kremlin
intervention to halt harass-
ment directed against him
and to end what he termed
his "enforced detention" in
the USSR.

Neizvesty, who has been
in official disfavor for
many years, said he sent
his appeal after a second
refusal this year for per-
mission to emigrate. Ear-
lier this year he said he
was told by officials he
could not leave because he
had not divorced his wife.

Now, he told Western re-
porters, officials had told
him he could not leave be-
cause he had two aged par-
ents. When he appealed to
emigrate last March, he was
expelled from the artists'
union and from his official
workshop. He told reporters
that his wife and his mother
and father had approved his
request to emigrate.

Red Magen David Still Seeks-
to Join Red Cross League

Ambassador Shabtai Ro-
senne, the Israeli diplomat
who is a special adviser to
the executive committee of
the Red Magen David So-
ciety in Israel, will visit the
United States for three
weeks next month in con-
nection with the society's ef-
forts to obtain admission
into the League of Red
Cross Societies.
Rosenne, who has -served
Israel for 15 years at the
United Nations, is due in
New York about Nov. 10 and
will visit a number of other
cities including Boston,
Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago,
Los Angeles, San Francisco,
Houston, New Orleans,
Miami and Washington.
Assisting in the efforts,
which have become - known
as "Operation Recognition,"
is Rabbi Rubin R. Dobin of
New York.
The history of thie Red
Magen David Society's ef-
forts to become a league
member began in the spring
of 1949, at the first diplo-
matic conference outside of

the United Nations at which
Israel was represented.
The Magen David Society,
which is Israel's national
relief organization, is in the
unsatisfactory position of
not being able to gain ad-
mittance into the League of
Red Cross Societies because
a current condition for ad-
mission is that the member
of a national society use one
of the recognized emblems
and titles.

The results is a vicious
circle of discussions that
have gone on for a_quarter
of a century on inter-gov-
ernmental and societal

Last year, in Geneva, Is-
rael put forward a formal
proposal requesting mem-
bership at the diplomatic
conference on Reaffirma-
tion of Humanitarian Law.
The three-year conference
will terminate next year.
