ported here by the Student
Strugle for Soviet Jews

In Moscow, his mother,
Ida Milgrom, said that "a
long fast means inevitable
death. I don't think he will
survive," the two Soviet
Jewry groups reported.
She said her son had
not been allowed to send
letters since December
1981 and that she had
twice been prevented
from seeing him last
April and July.
"In January, when I last
saw him, he looked like a
virtual skeleton," Mrs. Mil-
grom was reported as say-
ing. "Now they (Soviet
authorities) are doing all
they can to see that he dies."
Avital Shcharansky,
Anatoly's wife, said in a
statement in Jerusalem
where she resides:
"Jews around the world
have just completed a fast
for one day, Yom Kippur,
but Anatoly has begun an
unlimited hunger strike in
a Soviet prison to protest his
complete isolation from the
outside world and from
being cut off from his wife in

Jerusalem and his family in
Moscow. In spite of his de-
teriorating health, after
serving for more than a year
in isolation in strict regime
during his imprisonment,
and appeals to the Kremlin
to no avail, he decided to go
on a hunger strike."
Meanwhile, in Washing-
ton, State Department
spokesman Alan Romberg
said: "We wish to emphasize
how thoroughly we deplore
the Soviet authorities'
willful abuse of Mr.
Shcharansky's rights which
has led to this desperate de-
cision. We call on Soviet
authorities to reconsider
their treatment of Mr.
Shcharansky and restore
his ability to be allowed to
communicate with friends
and relatives.
Shcharansky, 34, a
computer scientist, was
accused of espionage and
treason and sentenced in
1977 to 13 years in prison
and labor camps.

Bnai and Bnot Mitzva by
twinning with Soviet
Jewish young people.
Bar/Bat Mitzva twin-
ning, in which the refusnik
child becomes Bar or Bat
Mitzva in absentia,
strengthens the bond that
exists between world Jewry
and Soviet Jewry. It
dramatizes the absence of
religious and cultural free-
dom for Jews in the USSR.
Several local synagogues
have already begun par-
ticipating in the program.
Jerry Rogers, chairman of
the DSJC's Outreach Sub-
committee under whose
aegis the twinning project
falls, stated that the goal of
the DSJC is to assist every
Jewish youngster in the De-
troit area in having a twin-
ned Bar or Bat Mitzva. Ro-
gers noted that committee
members hope to meet with
all Bar and Bat Mitzva
classes in order to explain
the program to them.
Diane J. Klein and Ellie
Slovis, twinning co-
chairmen, have announced
that a manual entitled
"Make A Connection" is
now available and offers
examples of invitations,
newspaper articles,
speeches and responsive
readings. To obtain a copy of
the manual or to arrange for
a speaker on twinning, call
Beverly Yost at the Jewish
Community Council, 962-
1880. •

EXCALIBUR

Soviet Jewish refusnik Ale-
xander Lerner was ordered
by the KGB to sever all ties
with foreigners or face
prison or internal exile.
Lerner was told if he did
not comply with the order
he would "share
Shcharansky's fate."
Lerner, who speaks fluent
English, is reportedly com-
plying with the order.
Lerner applied to emi-
grate in 1971 with his
wife, Yudif, and son. He
was refused permission
on the grounds that he
once had access to
classified information as
a researcher on auto-
mated control systems.
Mrs. Lerner died last
summer. When the family
asked Soviet authorities for
permission to send the body
to Israel for burial, Soviet
officials refused.
