Jewry.
Ms. Nudel, who will be 51
on April 27, first applied for
an emigration visa to Israel
in 1971.
According to Zeesy

ence, no one can be sure

to emigrate to Isreal upon
her release.
Ms. Schnur added: "It
is crucial that we com-
municate with the
Soviets, and insist that
Ida be given permission
to go to Israel at once."
She suggested contacting
Secretary of State Ale-
xander Haig at the State
Department in Washing-
ton, D.C., and to Soviet
Ambassador Anatoly
Dobrynin at the Embassy
of the USSR, 1125 16th St.,
Washington, D.C. 20036.
In 1978, Mrs. Nudel hung
a banner from her Moscow
apartment window which
stated, "KBG, give me my
visa."
When agents tore down
her banner, she replaced it
with others, and finally
with a cloth bearing the
Star of David. For this, she
was arrested, imprisoned
and sent into exile — on
charges of malicious
hooliganism. Her stalwart
support of prisoners of con-
science, despite all risks,
earned her the name
"Guardian Angel" long be-
fore her own exile.
In Jerusalem President
Yitzhak Navon was asked
in an appeal from 13 Jewish
scholars in Moscow to
mobilize world support fo-
themselves and several
hundred of their colleagues
who want to immigrate to
Israel but have been denied
exit visas by the Soviet
authorities.
A letter sent to Navon
said that 40 Jewish pro-
fessors and more than
300 Jews with PhD de-
grees had applied to
leave the USSR last year.
As a result, they were
fired from their jobs and
were barred from doing
research in their fields.
Meanwhile, at their re-
cent convention in Atlanta,
Ga., the members of the
Alpha Omega Dental
Fraternity campaigned for
the release of Dr. Mark
Nashpitz, a Soviet Jewish
refusnik who has been de-
nied an exit visa.
In New York, according to
information received from
Minsk by the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry, re-
fusnik Nadzhda Ov-
sishcher, wife of former Col.

Lev Ovsilicher, suffered a
second massive heart attack
last week. She is presently
listed in critical condition
and is hospitalized.
The Ovsishchers have
been struggling for exit
visas since 1972. Their
daughter, Tatiana, lives in
Israel.
In a related develop-
ment, Soviet Jews must
overcome a • virtual
crazy-quilt of Catch-22
regulations and dozens of
other discouragingly
menacing obstacles if
they hope to succeed in
leaving their homeland
for Israel.
This is made clear in a
guide written anonymously
by a Jew who remains in the
Soviet Union and published
by the International Coun-
cil of Bnai Brith.
Formally titled "Hot to
Emigrate to Israel From the
USSR," it has also been pub-
lished and distributed as a
samizdat (underground)
document by Hebrew Uni-
versity in Jerusalem.
The extremely inform-
ative guide leads would-
be-emigrants step by step
over and around the pitfalls
and traps that make up the
"official" Soviet procedure
for emigration.
Probably the worst of
all pitfalls is not even an
"official" procedure; it is
that applicants are vul-
nerable to the whims of
even the lowliest — and
frequently jealous anti-
Semitic — clerk.
And because pitfalls and
traps are everywhere, the
author exhorts would-be
emigrants to remain op-
timistic and cheerful; he
even heads the final sub-
chapter "Don't Lose Heart!"
By providing concrete ad-
vice on-how to emigrate, the
guide attempts to resolve
the problem of government
secrecy on the issue. "It is
meant for those who have
already taken the decision
to emigrate to Israel from
the USSR" and not as a
stimulus for agitation, the
author states.
The author urges appli-
cants to demand substanti-
ation for any refusal in the
application process. And "if
you are accused of commit-
ting an antisocial act,
treason or betrayal, protest;
go as far as bringing a court
case," he said, suggesting
letters of complaint and ap-
peal to officials on all levels,
to newspapers, heads of
state "and anybody else who
seems suitable."
For those who may not be
aware of economic and so-
cial conditions in Israel, the
guide tells what emigrants
can expect, including the
possibility of further strife
between Israel and its Arab
neighbors and the require-
ment for military service.
