Bnai Brith to Plead Soviet Jewry's Case

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
In an effort to reverse the
campaign by the Soviet
Union to snuff out Jewish
culture within its borders,
Bnai Brith International
will send a special delega-
tion to provide information
about the status of Soviet
Jewry to the World Confer-
ence on Cultural Policies in
Mexico City, which opens
Monday.
The conference will be
held under the auspices of
the United Nations Educa-
tional, Scientific and Cul-
tural Organization (UN-
,— ESCO).
Philip Lax, chairman of
the International Council of
Bnai Brith, said the group
plans to present data to help
UNESCO fulfill its guaran-
tees that everyone has the
right to enjoy his own ethnic
culture, including the lan-
guage of minorities.

that "this is specifically
defined in international
law."
In California a bill which
calls on the Soviet Union to
honor its commitment to the
Helsinki accords by allow-
ing Prisoner of Conscience
Anatoly Shcharansky to
emigrate to Israel has been
passed unanimously by the
State Senate and Assembly.
The Bay Area Council on
Soviet Jewry is listed as a
sponsor of the bill.
In Washington, Con-
gressmen sent a joint letter
to Soviet President Leonid
Brezhnev urging him "to do
everything in your power to
expediate the emigration of
Marina Tiemkin" of Mos-
cow who, at the age of 13 in
1973, was kidnapped by
Russian police from her
father, Prof. Alexander
Tiemkin, after both had re-
ceived exit visas to Israel.

Citing the Soviet
Union's drive to prohibit
the teaching of Hebrew
and Yiddish, Lax as-
serted, "Central to
human rights in the field
of a minority culture is
the assurance that that
culture's language or
languages will not be
subject to discrimination,
let alone to deprivation
or exclusion." He added

Prof. Tiemkin visited
the U.S. last month, in-
cluding Detroit, to pub-

Sharon Offer
to PLO Fighters
Remains Open

TEL AVIV (JTA) — De-
fense Minister Ariel Sharon
told' reporters in Beirut
Monday that he stands by
his offer to give temporary
refuge in Israel to any
Palestine Liberation
Organization fighters, now
in west Beirut who can
prove they have not partici-
pated in terrorist acts
against Israel. He did not
say what would constitute
such proof.
The PLO reportedly re-
jected the offer.
Sharon spoke to the re-
porters after meeting with
U.S. special envoy Philip
Habib who is trying to
negotiate the departure of
PLO forces from west Beirut
and Lebanon. He said the
problem was that no Arab
country has agreed to accept
the estimated 5,000-6,000
PLO men and their
families.
Meanwhile, Israelis and
Palestinians exchanged in-
termittant small arms fire
in the Beirut area Monday
which later escalated to ar-
tillery and tank fire. There
were similar exchanges last
weekend during which the
Israelis claimed to have de-
stroyed a PLO tank.

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
About 220 boys between the
ages of 12 and 15, who were
captured by the Israel De-
fense force during the fight-
ing in Lebanon, were re-
leased Monday to the Inter-
national Red Cross.
The youth had been cap-
tured after they fought Is-
raeli troops with Soviet-
made rocket-propelled gre-
nades.
Some of them told Israeli
reporters that they had
been shanghaied by the
Palestine Liberation
Organization while on
school outings and forced to
serve with the PLO.

Geishas, a Leningrad ac-

Theodore Mann, chairman
of the National Conference

Geishas was interned at

900 miles from his home

Mann said.

sion to emigrate to Israel in
December 1978 and was
immediately expelled from
the institute where he was a
second-year student.
Ordered to appear be-

board in May 1980, he re-
fused on the grounds that
he had been denied -the
right to an education and
that military service
might expose him to state

secrets, thus delaying his
emigration even further.

He was arrested in July
