NEW YORK (JTA)—
Felix Kamov-Kandel, the
well-known Soviet Jewish
screenwriter, has received
permission to emigrate
from the Soviet Union with
his family, the Greater New
York Conference on Soviet

Jewry reported.
Permission was granted
four years after Kamov-
Kandel applied for an exit
permit. Since that time he
has been cut off from the
ordinary privileges of life.
Kamov-Kandel is an

acclaimed playwright and
scriptwriter, as well as crea-
tor of an internationally
renowned cartoon. After
requesting an exit permit,
Soviet authorities did not
allow his work to be cred-
ited to him. In addition. he
was isolated from his asso-
ciates in the film industry
and from his literary col-
leagues in the Soviet Union
and elsewhere.
During his four year wait-
ing period, Kamov-Kandel
held two long hunger
strikes, protesting refusal of
permission to emigrate, and
of his treatment after he
had filed for an exit permit.
He was editor of the samiz-
dat publication, "Tarbut."

Largest Selection of

Protestants and Roman
Catholics will stand in for
members of the Jewish
faith during the High Holy
Days and sound the shofar
opposite the Soviet
Embassy, in support of
Soviet Jews.
The Rev. John F. Stein-
bruck, pastor of the Luther
Place Memorial Lutheran
Church and a leader of the
National Interreligious Task
Force on Soviet Jewry,
announced that since obser-
vant Jews do not travel on
Rosh Hashana and Yom
Kippur, Christians will
stand the quiet watch at the
daily vigil opposite the
Embassy and sound the
shofar.
In this manner, Stein-
bruck said, solidarity will
be expressed with
oppressed Soviet Jews and
Christians. The vigil is now
in its eighth year.
Meanwhile, a group of

recently arrived refugees
from the Soviet Union will
celebrate their first Sukkot
as free Jews in a historic
American setting: a syna-
gogue which used to be an
old Quaker meeting house,
now designated a New York
landmark.
Before the Civil War the
Brotherhood Synagogue, at
144 E. 20th St., was a link in
the "underground rail-
road"—the secret system
which helped runaway
slaves from the South to
reach freedom. This year
Russian-Jewish refugees
will celebrate their newly
attained freedom in that
building. And, for the first
time in their lives, they will
participate in decorating a
sukka.

Journalist Ordered Dayan's Son Calls
to Stop Accusing
Begin a Danger
Nazi in Newspaper

AMSTERDAM (JTA)—
The Amsterdam Higher Dis-
trict Court; reversing the
decision of the president of
the Amsterdam Lower
Court of last June, has
ordered that the Jewish
journalist, Hans Knoop, and
the weekly of which he is
editor, "Accent," must stop
publishing charges against
Pieter Menten until it will
have been proved as the
result of the criminal trial
now being conducted
against him that these
charges are true.
The editor of Knoop's
book on the Menten affair
must also cease distributing
this book since it contains
unproven accusations. the
court ruled. Menten must no
longer be called "war crim-
inal" or "mass murderer"
or "scoundrel."
The court also ordered
they must refrain from
accusation that has not been
included in the charge
sheet. Knoop and the pub-
lisher of "Accent" will now
appeal to the High Court of
Justice.

AMSTERDAM (JTA)—
Asaf Dayan, an Israeli film
actor and son of Foreign
Minister Moshe Dayan, de-
nounced Premier Menahem
Begin and the present
Likud government as "dan-
gerous for Israel."
The actor, who is in Hol-
land to film "The Uranium
Conspiracy" in which he
plays the leading role as an
Israeli secret agent, said he
is "afraid of men who trust
only in,God and not in them-
selves. It is too absurd that
only the present armed
peace is envisaged, where-
as our alternative, namely,
striving for a secure peace,
is swept under the table."
