THE DETROIT' JEWISH NEWS

Solidarity Sunday for Soviet Jewry Launched
With Jackson-Udall NY Sympathy Ceremony

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Presidential candidates Sen.
Henry M. Jackson (D.-
Wash.) and Rep. Morris K.
Udall (D.-Ariz.) ate a break-
fast of stale bread and sar-
dine scraps Sunday in a
symbolic ceremony to
launch "Solidarity Sunday
for Soviet Jewry," May 2.
New York State Republi-
can Chairman Richard Ro-
senbaum delivered a mes-
sage from President Ford.
Messages from Vice Presi-
dent Nelson A. Rockefeller,
Governor Hugh Carey, Lieu-
tenant Governor Mary Ann
Krupsak, former Georgia
Governor Jimmy Carter,
Sen. Frank Church (D.-
Idaho) and Alabama Gover-
nor George Wallace were
also read at the breakfast.
They all expressed support
for Soviet Jewry in their ef-
forts to emigrate.
The two candidates, Dep-
uty Mayor Stanley Fried-
man, representing Mayor
Beame, and Borough. Presi-
dents Robert Abrams of the
Bronx, Donald Manes of
Queens and Percy Sutton of
Manhattan were joined at
the breakfast by 100 promi-
nent Jewish community
leaders to express an all-out
support of efforts to achieve
human rights for Soviet
Jews, freer emigration poli-
cies on the part of the USSR
and freedom for Soviet Jew-
ish "prisoners of consci-
ence."
A special guest at the
breakfast was Vladimir
Markman, a 38-year-old
engineer for whom the
bread and sardines com-
prised a regular "meal"
during the three years he
recently spent in a Soviet
prison camp. Markman,
who arrived here from Is-
rael last week, displayed a
typical prisoner's uniform,
one that has never before
been seen in the West.
In London, a non-stop
demonstration by Soviet
Jewry activists was held
during the visit by Soviet

Foreign Minister Andrei
Gromyko.
Members of the Women's
Campaign for Soviet Jewry
pursued Gromyko aboard a
green double-decker bus
plastered with slogans and
names and pictures of Jew-
ish prisoners in the USSR.
Inside the bus, hired from
the London transport au-
thorities, are members of
the so-called "35 Group"
dressed as Soviet prisoners.
Another motorized dem-
onstration was carried out
by members of the Betar
movement aboard their
"Herut-Mobile" in which
they travelled to the recent
Soviet Jewry conference in
Brussels. Members of the
newly-formed National
Council of Soviet Jewry
mounted a vigil outside the
Soviet Embassy in Bayswa-
ter every afternoon and eve-
ning during Gromyko's
three-day visit as guest of
Foreign Secretary, James
Callaghan and Prime Minis-
ter Harold Wilson.
Gromyko and Callaghan
held a round of talks on bi-
lateral matters, interna-
tional affairs, the Middle
East, South Africa, and
reviewed events in Europe
since last year's Helsinki
conference.
Meanwhile, in Tel Aviv, a
group of prominent Soviet
Jewish scientists who have
immigrated to Israel,
warned that unless Israel's
social structure is drasti-
cally changed, the number
of immigrants from the
USSR would continue to
drop and the rate of depa-
ture from Israel may fur-
ther increase.
Although the foremost
impediment to emigration
from the USSR continues to
be the restrictions imposed
by Soviet authorities, anx-
iety among potential olim as
to what confronts them in
Israel is now a real deter-
rent, Dr. Victor Polsky said
at a press conference at
Beth Sokolow here.

They said that some
100,000 Soviet Jews have
received notification that
they are wanted in Israel -.
But because of Soviet re-
strictions and because of
social conditions in Israel,
many hesitate to come.
In a related develop-
ment, "information that
Dr. Deborah Samuilovich
of Moscow had been
granted an exit visa to join
her family in Israel is

false," Inez Weissman,
president of the Long Is-
land Committee for Soviet
Jewry, stated.
According to information
received by the LICSJ in a
letter from Benny Deborin
in Israel, Dr. Samuilovich's
son, permission to emigrate
has not been granted, just a
promise made to her. He
stated that he was terribly
upset and disappointed that
