Envoy Queries Argentina's Jacobo Timerman Case

NEW YORK (JTA) -- Dr.
Jorge Aja Espil, theArgen-
tine ambassador to Wash-
ington, has written a note to
his government questioning
the continuing detention of
Jacobo Timerman, was
reported here by Jacob
Kovadloff, director of South
American Affairs for the
American Jewish Commit-
tee.
Kovadloff noted that
April 15 was the second an-
niversary of the arrest of
Timerman, the editor and
publisher of La Opinion.
Timerman, whose news-
paper was seized by the gov-
ernment, is still under
house arrest in his Buenos
Aires apartment even
though the Argentine Sup-

reme Court said last sum-
mer he should be released
since there are no charges
against him. His wife and
three children are now liv-
ing in Israel and he wants to
join them.

Aja Espil's note
pointed out that the con-
tinued detention of

Aja Espil said that one of
the reasons given for the
continued imprisonme'ht of
Timerman was the
presumed "adverse reac-
tion" from the government's

NEW YORK (JTA) -- A
grant award has been
signed between the Council
of Jewish Federations and
the Depaiitment of Health,
Education and Welfare im-
plementing a $16 million
federal block grant for
Soviet-Jewish resettle-
ment.
In approving the docu-
ment, HEW Secretary
Joseph A. Califano, Jr., paid
tribute to the "impressive
record compiled by volun-
tary agencies in providing
help for refugees over the
years without Federal aid."
But he recognized that
"their resources had been
strained" by the increasing
number of immigrants, par-
ticularly from the Soviet
Union. Close to 4,000 Jews

are currently exiting from
the Soviet Union each
month.
CJF President Morton
Mandel stated that "appli-
cations are open to federa-
tions for matching grants on •
a 50-50 basis to resettle
16,000 Soviet Jews arriving
in the United States from
Oct. 1, 1978 to Sept. 30,
1979. Funds will be used for
English language training,
vocational and technical in-
struction, job placement,
health care and related ac-
culturation services."
According to the HEW
contract, the purpose of the
grant is to enable immig-
rants in the United States to
become "independent and
self-supporting members of
'American society."

The English-language

AMSTERDAM (JTA) —
Deborah, a new women's
group aimed at increasing
the participation of women
in Jewish communal af- ,
fairs, was launched here by
members of The Nether=
lands Ashkenazic Congre-
gation. _
The organization pis open
to all Jewish women,
whether or not members of
the congregation. Its stated
purpose is to increase their
Jewish awareness.
But it is also urging a
larger representation of
women in official commu-
nity bodies. Despite the
shortage of qualified male
candidates, Netherlands
rabbis still tend to bar
women from serving on the
councils and' executive
committees of the
Ashkenazic and Sephardic
congregations.
