three to eight years on
trumped up charges of brib-
ery, the Greater New York
Conference on Soviet Jewry
reported.
Zats, a construction
engineer from Chernovtsy,
received a three-year sen-
tence. Zats, his wife, two
children and mother-in-law
received exit visas to Israel
at the end of 1979. At the
last moment, Zats' visa was
confiscated and old charges,
which were officially drop-
ped in October 1977, were
brought up again.
At that time, the local
procurator, after a lengthy
nine-month investigation,
had decided that there was
no case against Zats and all
charges against him were
dropped. The authorities
reopened the case when he
applied to go to Israel in Oc-
tober 1979.
Rosenberg, from Tash-
kent, charged with brib-
ing a Soviet official to ob-
tain an exit visa to Israel,
was given five years im-
prisonment and confisca-
tion of property.
Rosenberg and his wife
applied to emigrate to Israel
in 1979 to reunite with their
two daughters there.
Rosenberg was charged
With Article 153/2 of the
Uzbeck Criminal Code on
Dec. 31, 1979, at which time
all the family's property
was confiscated. The trial in
May 1980 was held behind
closed doors.
The third Jew, Biletsky,
was sentenced to eight
years in prison on similar

charges of bribery.
Meanwhile, 24 members
of Congress sent cables to
Soviet President Leonid
Brezhnev on behalf of two
Jews who may be executed
for "economic crimes," ac-
cording to the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry
(NCSJ).
Rafael Adzhiashvill, 49,
from Tblisi, and Mamed
Abasov from Baku, were
sentenced to death in
August 1978, for the al-
leged stealing of factory
surplus textile for resale.
In Chicago, Alexander
Slepak, a Soviet Jew whose
parents are exiled in
Siberia, urged continued
pressure on the USSR for
free Jewish emigration in
order to "stop the next
Holocaust."
In Albany, N.Y. former
'
Soviet dissident Alexander
Ginzburg reminded the
New York State legislators
that 10 years after the
Leningrad hijacking trials
in the Soviet Union, there
are still three men impris-
oned for the "crime."

Toronto Temple
Appoints Woman

TORONTO (JTA) — Joan
Friedman, 27, of
Marblehead, Mass., has
been appointed assistant
rabbi of Toronto's Holy
Blossom Temple, the first
woman rabbi in Canada.
She was ordained June 1 in
New York City at the He-
brew Union College-Jewish
Institute of Religion.

Yuri Federov and
Alexei Murzhenko, two of
the three men still being
held for the alleged at-
tempt to hijack a plane to
Israel 10 years ago, were
Ginzburg's bunkmates in
a Mordovian prison
camp, he said. Federov
and Murzhenko acre
Christians.

The third prisoner, Iosif
Mendelovich, a Jew, has
persisted in strict obser-
vance of Jewish law at the
camp, despite additional
hardship and suffering im-
posed on him, according to
reports.

Germany Turn
Down Ban on
Japanese Toys

BONN (JTA) — Federal
authorities have decided
not to ban Japanese-made
toys bearing Nazi symbols
or mimicking the weapons
used by the German army
and. the SS during World
War II.
The importer, a Nurem-
burg firm, promised for its
part, to stop distributing the
toys which have been sold in
stores throughout West
Germany, although, accord-
ing to the authorities, not in
great quantities.
The decision by the
authority responsible for
controlling dangerous toys
came after nine months of
litigation initiated by the
youth department of the
town of Bielefeld.
