Ella Feinberg, shown at left with her family, died in
July at age 13, despite many years of pleas by her family
that they be allowed to emigrate to Israel where treatment
was available for her asthma condition.

Soviet Union has become
"a world center for anti-
Semitic propaganda." Mos-
cow, he said, is distributing
this hate material both in-
side the Soviet Union and in
foreign lands.
Presidium member Philip
Klutznick, chairman of the
World Jewish Congress ex-
ecutive board, said Soviet
anti-Semitism is state organ-
ized and manipulated. He
pinpointed the Soviet Acad-
emy, a government con-_

trolled body, as one of the
main culprits in dis-
seminating hate-filled mate-
rial. He said the Soviet
Union is no longer even
trying to use anti-Zionism
as a pretext for its open
anti-Semitism.
The two-day presidium
meeting examined the con-
sequences of the Helsinki
Agreement and evaluated
prospects of the forthcom-
ing Belgrade Conference. It
also dealt with "Prisoners
of Zion," .Soviet anti-Jewish
measures and Soviet cul-
ture inside Russia.
Meanwhile, at the requek
of the Columbia University
chapter of the Student
Struggle for Soviet Jewry,,
Congressman Ted Weiss
(D-NY) has initiated an ap-
peal co-signed by Senator
Clifford' Case, Rep. Ben-
jamin Rosenthal and 43
other members of Congress
which has been sent to So-
viet leader Leonid Brezh-
nev on behalf of Moscow re-
fusenik Vladimir Prestin.
The 42-year-old .radio-

electronic engineer and fii
family have been repea
edly denied visas to Isra
