Passover '78 Doubly Notable Soviet Jewish Artist Speaks
at Shaarey Zedek Art Show
for Russian Jewish Family
Soviet Jewish under-

Passover, the Festival of
Freedom, held double sig-
nificance for the Zinovy
Simanovsky Family. It
marked not only the tradi-
tional celebration of the -de-
liverance of the ancient
Jews from their oppressors
in-Egypt, but the deliver-
ance of this Russian Jewish
family from their Soviet op-
pressors.
Highlighting the occasion
even more was the celebra-
tion of the Bar Mitzva of
Oleg Simanovsky, youngest
of the family's two children.
Oleg became Bar Mitzva at
second day Passover serv-
ices at Cong. Beth Shalom,
at which Rabbi David A.
Nelson officiated. Cantor
Samuel Greenbaum, who
chanted the liturgical por-
tion of the service, trained
the family for their aliyot
and the Bar Mitzva for his
recitation.
Prevented from actively
practicing Judaism in Rus-
sia, the family wanted more
than anything else upon ar-
riving in the U.S. to be
counted as members of the
Jewish community.

cently resigned as deputy
assistant to President Car-
ter, will be the guest

Siegel received a PhD de-
gree in political science
from Northwestern Univer-
sity. He was professor of
political science at Loyala
University in Chicago and
was a history and govern-
ment lecturer at the Uni-
versity of Chicago.
From 1975 to 1977 he was
the executive director of the
Democratic National Com-
mittee. He is the author of
many publications and the

In their quest for
recognition by their co-
religionists, the family
began by enrolling in
English classes at the
Jewish Community Cen-
ter, and at the request of
Joanna Berger, who
teaches English to newly
arrived Russians, the
family was given a crash
course at Beth Shalom.

Cantor Greenbaum said
the training for the Bar
Mitzva and aliyot was the
beginning of the family's
Jewish education. He found
the Simanovskys eager to
learn.
Parents Zinovy and Fira
recited the Shehekhyanu,
and received a gift of an
Haggada. Alex received a
copy of the Pirke Avot, and
the Bar Mitzva received a
Bible and a medallion of
conscience with the name of
another Soviet Jewish fam-
ily awaiting permission to
