NCSJ Challenges Soviet Union on Claim for Holding Marina Tiemkin

NEW YORK (JTA) — The
Greater New York Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry has
challenged the Soviet Union
to allow 16-year-old Marina
Tiemkin to speak to her
father "on neutral ground,"
to test the truthfulness of
their claim that she does not
want to.,be reunited with
him.
Malcolm Hoenlein, con-
ference executive director,
noted that. the Soviet Mis-
sion to the UN issued a
statement laSt week in
which it said that Marina
does not wish to join her
father. Dr. Alexander Ti-
emkin, in Israel. The Soviet
statement claimed that
Marina "is preparing for
university studies and has
•--- •;ntention to'go to Israel."
`oenlein said the con-
terence,,has wired the So-
viet Mission to demand
that Marina, who has not
seen her father for three
years, be granted the right
to speak with her father
without duress from a neu-
tral place, such as the U.S.
Embassy or an American
news agency.
"We are convinced that if
allowed to speak with Dr.
Tiemkin, Marina will reiter-
ate her long-held desire to
leave the USSR, a desire
which was reaffirmed to us
by people who met and
spoke with her last August,
and to join him in Israel."

Students were highly active at the Brussels confer-
ence. Members of the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry
and Betar demonstrated at Aeroflot Russian airlines in
solidarity with five American Betar youths who sat in
simultaneously at the health ministry in Moscow to offer
themselves as hostages for prisoner of conscience Dr.
Mikhail Stern. After 7
hours, the five were ejected
from the ministry and forced to leave the USSR.

, In
London,
Jewish
sources in the Soviet Union
report that the monument
to the martyrs of Shchedrin,
once a largely Jewish town
near Bobroisk, Byelorussia,
has again been desecrated
by hooligans..

Previously, the monu-
ment bore an inscription in
Yiddish, but this was er-
ased.

Meanwhile, in Detroit,
Cong. Beth Shalom re-
ceived a letter from Elean-
ora Poltinnikov Shifrin,
relative of Soviet prison-
ers of conscience, Isaac;
Irma and Victoria Poltin-
nikov, thanking the con-
gregation for its support of
her oppressed family. Mrs.
Shifrin is living in Israel
with her husband and
daughter, and is actively

Sternstein Backs Mansfield Call
for Senate Probe of Egypt Ties

Dr. Joesph P. Sternstein,
president of the 120,000
member Zioni s t Organiza-
tion of America, called on
the Senate Foreign Rela-
tions and House Interna-
tional Relations Commit-
tees to summon Secretary
of State Kenry A. Kissinger
"immediately" to "de-
termine under oath the true
facts about reports of secret
agreements with the Arab
countries."

Senate Majority Leader
Mike Mansfield (D-Mont.)

suggested last week that the
Senate inquire- into Egyp-
tian President Anwar Sad-
at's statements that the
U.S: had promised that Is-
rael would not attack Syria
and that the Palestinians
would participate in a Mid-
dle East settlement. -
Kissinger later said the
Congress had received all
"relevant" agreements re-
lated to the Sinai accord
between Israel and Egypt.
This left open the possibility
of U.S. commitments that
could be defined as not par-

Da► Schools Gain Popularity

NEW YORK — Day
schools, once totally absent
from Reform Jewish syn-
agogues, are gaining popu-
larity in all parts of the
United States and Canada.
Today, five such Jewish
full-time educational pro-
grams are in operation, and
five to 10 additional schools
are slated for establishment
over the next five years.
To further the develop-
ment of existing day schools
and to assist Reform con-
egations interested in
such schools, the
2.partment
apart ment of Education of
Union of American He-
nrew Congregations re-
cently conducted a four-day
meeting.
Participants exchanged
experiences, defined prob-
lems and outlined steps to
be taken by the UMIC to
aid congregations inter-
ested in sponsorship of
such pilot programs.
The five functioning day
schools are located in New

--

York City (Cong. Rodeph
Sholom): Miami (Temple
Beth Israel) and Toronto.
The directors of day
schools and. the leaders of
congregations 'interested in
sponsoring - full-time Jewish
educational programs em-
phasized that the interest
among young families in
these schools is primarily
the result of a desire for the
deepening of Jewish knowl-
edge. Closer ,identity with
the Jewish people was an
other reason advanced. But-
tressing those concerns is
par,ental dissatisfaction
with the standards of the
public schools in their com-
munities.

Rabbi Isaac asked Rabbi
Aba: "One poor man did not
leave a stone unturned to
procure some bread, then
came another and took it
away. from him. How would
you term the second?" — "A
wicked person," answered
Rabbi Aba. (Kiddushin 59).

nonetheless.
Edward C. Aldridge Jr..,--
acting Defense Depart-
ment assistant secretary
for program analyseS and
valuation, told the ZOA
executive committee meet-
ing in Washington that
"whatever influence we
have in the Middle East is
due to our strength."
- Aldridge said, "If Israel
were not there the situation
in the Middle East would be
intolerable. There would be
a great chance of war. Israel
provides the necessary sta-
bility in the -Middle East
and that is what we are
hoping for to avoid a con-
frontation (between the
U.S. and the Soviet Union)
in the Middle East."
Jacques Torczyner, a past
president of the ZOA and a
member of the World Zion-
ist Organization executive,
urged support by American
Jews of the small Jewish
communities in Europe that
he said were threatened
with extinction. He sug-
gested _young European
Jews be invited to the U.S.
to meet the American Peo-
ple.
"We respect the centrality
of Israel," Torczyner said
"but we must not forget the
constructive power of•the -
Jewish community in the
United States."
•' lie added that. the Euro-
peans "look to us for guid-
ance" and for educational
and informational materi-
als. "It cannot all come from
Israel," he said. "It must
come from here."

Mr. and Mrs. Poltinnikov

Although attempts at
