Moscow to Israel by Dr.
Alexander Luntz, a
Jewish activist in Mos-
cow. His reading was
taped in Israel and the
recording replayed by

New Year

Yevgeny Lanchik of
Odessa.
In New York, an un-
usual bridal party held a
mock wedding ceremony
last week at the Soviet
Mission to the United Na-
tions. There was a bride,
bridesmaid and flower
girls T all in appropriate
wedding attire. But there.
was no bridegroom.
The ceremony, coordi-
nated by the Greater New
York Conference on
Soviet Jewry, served to
dramatize the continuing
plight of Ida Nude!, a
Soviet Jewish woman
known as the "guardian
angel" of the Soviet Jewry
movement. Similar de-
monstrations were held on
her behalf throughout the
world during "Interna-
tional Ida Nudel Week."
The bridal party left
bouquets of white flowers
at the Mission for the wife
of Soviet Ambassador
Jacob Malik, and urged
her to help reunite Ida
and her husband, who is
now living in Israel.
Bronx Borough Presi-
dent Robert Abrams, con-
ference chairman, ex-
plained that the "wed-
ding ceremony" was de-
signed to call public at-
tention to the fact that
only three months after
Ida was married to Yuli
Brind, a former "prisoner
of conscience," the couple
was forcibly separated.
In a related develop-
ment, the New York Times
reported that Venaimin
Bogomolny; a Soviet Jew,
recently was the victim of
Soviet harassment. Upon
his return from a vacation,
Bogomolny found his
apartment in a shambles,
with only some Hebrew
books, correspondence to
his family in Israel and ap-
plications for. visa missing.
According to the New
York Times, it was the
latest in a series of acts of
violence or harassment
suffered by dissidents
and nonconformists, al-
though in this case, as in
others, there is no hard
proof of - official involve-
ment.
Bogomolny has been
denied an exit visa on the
grounds that he knows,
state secrets. While an

longed to a construction

Meanwhile, the Na-
tional Conference on
Soviet Jewry has learned
that -former POC Yuri
Vudka has been ordered
by Soviet authorities not
to leave his home from 6
p.m.-6 a.m: and must re-
gister with the local
police once a week as
punishment for "main-
taining contact wi'
Jewish nationalities" ai.
not "remedying his
ways.' .
The NCSJ also reported
that Odessa activist
Shmuel Bronfman arrived s-
in Israel with his wife
Raya, who was recently
hospitalized in the Soviet
Union for leukemia.
At the same time, Dr.
Leonid Reines, a leading
Leningrad activist, has
received permission for
himself and his family to
go to Israel.
In Tel Aviv, the widow
of Col.•- Yefirn Davidovich,
the Red Army hero who
died la&t, April of a heart
attack in his home in
Minsk, arrived with her
daughter, Sofia, and her
grandson, Alexander.
Also arriving in Israel
was Mark Abramovich, a
former leading Soviet ac-
tivist.

Kissinger 'Exiles'
Jewish Pressure

NEW YORK (ZINS)—A
book by Saul Bellow will
soon appear on his impre-
ssions from Jerusalem. In
one of his chapters Bellow
reports a conversation
with Dr. Henry Kissinger.
Bellow writes that Kis-
singer complained Israel
exploits American Jews
by having them bring
pressure on th.e Ad-
ministration in
Washington. Kissinger is
reported as saying that
the American Jewish
community is harming
both Israel and itself.
•Kissinger ended the
meeting by remarking,
"It would have been bet-
ter for all concerned if the
Bible had been a product
of Uganda."
