Russia's Autonomous Jewish Region

Editor, The Jewish News:
I read the comment on the
article "The Synagogues in
Uzbekistan," which was
ublished in your news-
paper and think it would be
useful to remind your
r of these facts.
ding to the Central
Statistical Board of Uz-
ekistan, more than
100,000 Jews live in this
nstituent republic of the
USSR; its total population
15 million. The bulk of the
Jewish community consists
European Jews
(Aahkenazim) and Central
Asian Jews, also called
Bukhara Jews. There are
so small numbers of Geor-
gian Jews and Karaites, a
different sect of Jews origi-
nally from Daghestan.
Central Asian Jews have
lived in Uzbekistan since
the 12th Century. European
ews came there mostly in
the 1940s, when Hitler's in-
vasion of the USSR forced
them to leave the Ukraine,
yelorussia and central
Russia.
The Jews of Uzbekis-
tan play a significant role
the fields of life and
they enjoy the full rights
guarantted to all the na-
tional minorities by the
Constitution of the USSR
nd the Constitution of
zbekistan. Over 140
ews, representing var-
ous social groups, haye
een elected to the Sup-
reme Soviet and the local .
Soviets of Uzbekistan.
The educational level of
he Jewish population is
airly high:More than 6,000
ews study at colleges and
pecialized secondary
chools in Uzbekistan,

Polish-Jewish
Dialogue Planned

A _movement has been
started to open a dialogue
etween the Jewish and
Polish-American com-
munities in the Detroit
area. Jewish Community
.ouncil President John
Shepard has announced
that he and Mrs. Matilda
Rubin, chairperson of the
Jewish Community Coun-
cil's Community Relations
ommittee, have held pre-
liminary meetings with
Ronald Modras and
armette Szulec of the
Po is community.
The groups are discussing
educational and cultural
programs such as speakers
programs, forums and
roundtable discussions. The
overriding concern is that
each group correct any mis-
information and discrimi-
nation they now have for
each other.
Miss Szulec said that
similar dialogues are cur-
rently being conducted in
Chicago, Miami and Buf-
alo. She also said that
mutual help will be ex-,
ended on ethnic discrimi-
nation.

which is 1.5 percent of the
total number of students in
the republic. Jews are par-
ticularly numerous in tech-
nical and medical colleges.
They account for over six
percent of Uzbekistan's sci-
entific workers.
Widely known in the re-
public are Polytechnical In-
stitute Prof. Abram
Lavochkin, Prof. Emanuel
Rubinov, Doctor of Science
(Technology) and Boris
Pinkhasovv, Doctor of Sci-
ence (Law), who heads the
Tashkent Institute of
Criminology. Jews hold
senior posts in many minis-
tries, government depart-

ments and at industrial
enterprises.
Jews tangibly contribute
to the cultural progress of
Uzbekistan. Jewish writers,
painters, opera singers and
music composers have every
opportunity for creativity in
the republic.
Believers can freely per-
form religious rites in any of
the 15 synagogues which
operate in all the major
cities of Uzbekistan. The
facts are that Uzbekistan's
Jews live the full lives of
equal citizens. -

rael, officiated.

Chatham Super Markets
has _ introduced a line of
brandless grade products
called OKonomy.
The new product line will
offer cost savings of up to 30
percent over national
brands. The major dif-
ference in- the OKonomy
line from national brands is
appearance, not nutritional
values, and OKonomy
products are competitively
priced with the generic
"no-name brands" to enter
the market earlier this
year.
The lower prices result
from the use of products
judged by the United States
Department of Agriculture
as standard, rather than the
"fancy" grade of most na-
tional brands.
The new line has nine ini-
tial items: ket'chup, sweet
peas, whole kernel corn,
whole tomatoes, cut green
beans, apple sauce, straw-
berry preserves, grape jelly
and liquid dish detergent.
