WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Fifty Congressmen have
begun a four-month vigil of
three speeches weekly in the
House to help bring to na-
tional attention the plight of
Soviet Jewish families forci-
bly separated by the Soviet
government.
Rep. Joshua Eilberg (D.-
Pa.), chairman of the House
sub6ommittee on immigra-
tion, and Rep. Elizabeth

vigil last week with state-

and theme of the vigil: to
have the Soviet Union im-

made last year at the Hel-
sinki conference to allow
families to be reunited.
Rep. Sidney Yates (D.-
Ill.) made the first appeal
for a family March 17, ask-
ing that Felix Aronovich,
an engineer in Leningrad,
be permitted to reunite
with his mother, Mrs. Lu-
boy Dinenzim, and his
brother Viktor, who were
allowed to • emigrate in
1974 and now live in Chi-

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The Labor Alignment's sec-
ond round of debate on "end
Of war" diplomacy in the
Knesset on Monday pro-
duced a widened rift be-
oween "hawks" and "doves."
The government's 'policies
and party leadership were
sharply criticized by For-
mer Foreign Minister Abba
Eban and Former -Histadrut
Secretary General Yitzhak
Ben-Aharon among others.
Transport Minister Gad
Yaacobi was the govern-
mdnt's chief defender.
The most explosive issues
were Jewish prayer on the
Temple Mount in Jerusalem
and illegal Jewish settle-
ment on the West Bank —
subjects currently being
debated in the UN Security
Council — which sparked
the recent wave of riots and
demonstrations on the West
.Bank and.in East Jerusa-
lem.
Ben-Ahron contended
that these disturbances
were brought on by a
"series" of "Jewish na-
tionalistic and religious
provocation." He said the
weakness of the Labor
Party and the Labor
Alignment encouraged
these provocations.
Yaacobi retorted • that
Ben-Aharon's charges were
"wrong and unjust" and
without "factual basis." He
observed that demonstra-
tion had occurred in the
administered territories
long before these issues
came up that it was simply
"not true" that Jews
sparked the disturbances.
Yaacobi and Ben-Aharon
also argued over the govern-
ment's plan to requisition

grated to Israel in April,
1975, said his arrival for the
beginning of a nationwide
one-month tour that he is
seeking "continued support
and increased pressure from
scientists across the United
States to help my father and
mother and other Jews leave
the Soviet Union."
Dr. Levich said his par-
ents' condition is serious.
"I believe that continued
protest from Western scien-
tists could result in my par-
ents' release. If necessary, I
would suggest that Western
scientists apply both moral
and practical pressure,
especially on scientific ex-
changes, until Soviet Jewish
scientists can freely emi-
grate and the open exchange
of scientists between the
two countries becomes the
rule, rather than the excep-
tion."
In a related develop-
ment, Vladimir Markman,
a 38-year-old engineer
from Sverdlovsk who
served three years in a
strict regime Soviet labor
camp on charges of
"hooliganism" and
"dissemination of anti-
Soviet propaganda," will
arrive March 24 to begin a
national tour on behalf of
others still imprisoned in
Soviet labor camps.
Markman, who together

settlement, the latter claim-
ing that it was unwise. The
plan calls for displacing a
certain number of Arabs
who would be offered com-
pensatory land. Yaacobi
said the program was
planned "with great care
and consideration." Ben-
Aharon said the Labor
Party failed to "draw a clear
line" between itself and
such militant groups as the
Gush Emunim and Likud.
Housing Minister Avra-
ham Ofer, a Cabinet "dove,"
said the Labor Alignment
should emphasize that the
basic element of the Arab-
Israeli conflict was the ex-
istence of two states, a Jew-
ish State "and an Arab
State to the East."
Eban charged that Is,
rael caused itself great
damage by conceding for
the first time since 1948
that a legal state of war
existed with the Arabs. It
lent legitimacy to the Arab
blockades, boycott and
other measures which they
would claim were privi-
leges conferred by the
state of war, he said.
Eban was apparently im-
plying that by assenting to
an American initiative to
explore Arab attitudes to-
ward discussing an end of
the state of war, the Israeli
Government had acknowl-
edged that a state of war ex-
isted. This was something
Israel's friends never
countenanced, the former
minister said. But he pre-
dicted that the "end of war"
diplomacy would founder on
Arab obduracy and was
therefore no more realistic
than full peace proposals.
