Demonstration for Shcharansky Is Held by 2,000 in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (JTA)
— An estimated 2,000 per-
sons staged a march and
rally outside the Soviet
Consulate in San Francisco
Sunday in support of im-
prisoned Soviet Jewish ac-
tivist Anatoly Shcharansky
who was in the 21st day of
his hunger strike in the
notorious Chistipol Prison.
The rally was the largest
Soviet Jewry event in
northern California in
years, according to Morey

Schapiro, president of the
Bay Area Council on Soviet
Jewry.

The praticipants carried
signs, banners and photo-
graphs of Shcharansky who
began his indefinite hunger
strike because he has not
been allowed to send or re-
ceive mail from his family
or have family members
visit him since early this
year. His mother, Ida Mil-
grom, said in Moscow that a

lona hunger strike would
kill b her son.
U.S. Representative Phil-
lip Burton (D-Calif.) ad-
dressed the rally.
Shcharansky was arrested
in 1977 on charges of
"treason" and -anti-Soviet
agitation and propaganda.
He was sentenced to three
years in prison and 10 years
in a strict labor camp.
His wife Avital was
allowed to emigrate to Is-
rael eight years ago and
has received only four
letters from her husband
since then. She is not in
the United States meeting
with federal, state and
local officials and Jewish
community leaders in an
effort to help save her
husband's life.
Hunger strikes in solidar-
ity with Shcharansky took
place in a number of cities
across the country.
The National Conference
on Soviet Jewry reported
that it has received an ap-

of
peal
on
behalf
Shcharansky from 17
former Soviet refusniks now
living in Israel. The appeal
said, in part:
"The life of our beloved

friend and great hero is now
in mortal danger. We urge
you to mobilize world opin-
ion, to mobilize all those to
whom freedom and justice
are dear. We urge you to ex-

plain to the Soviet govern-
ment that they cannot crush
Anatoly's life in this way.
We ask you to react im-
mediately before it is too
late."

Lebanon War Takes Toll
on Youth Exchange Program

BONN (JTA) — Youth
exchange visits between
West Germany and Israel
have apparently suffered
because of the war in Leba-
non. Five West German
youth groups have cancel-
led visits to Israel and three
others recently announced
they would refuse to host Is-
raeli groups due to come
here.
The German groups
which decided not to go to
Israel said their reasons
were political. They
stressed, however, that
their decision did not mean
an end to the youth ex-
change program with Is-
rael. A Knesset member,
Adi Amorai, who is chair-
man of the public council for
youth exchanges, said here
that the number of cancella-
tions or delays this year
have been no greater than
in any previous year.
Amorai told his German
counterparts that it was
especially important to
promote youth exchanges
now precisely because of the
sharp differences over Is-
rael's actions in Lebanon.
He was told that the timing
of Israel visits should be
carefully weighed.
It is in fact difficult to
measure the effect of the
war in Lebanon on the
wide range of youth ex-
change programs
scheduled for next sum-
mer. Of the 120 German
youth groups which vis-
ited Isiael annually,
about half are financed
by funds ear-marked for
trips to Israel only. The

funds are available so the
rest can be used for trips
to any country in the
Middle East.
The new Christian Demo-
cratic government of Chan-
cellor Helmut Kohl is re-
viewing its Middle East pol-
icy with the aim of improv-
ing relations with all coun-
tries in the region. But no
major initiative's are ex-
pected before the general
elections March 6.

Vandals Destroy
Dartmouth Sukka

HANOVER, N.H. — The
destruction of a sukka at
Dartmouth College earlier
this month has aroused
alarm among some stu-
dents, faculty and adminis-
tration members who be-
lieve the act was possibly
motivated by campus anti-
Semitism.
Rabbi Michael Paley,
associate chaplain of the
college, said that although
the vandals may have been
drunk, it was likely that
they were aware that the
school's Jewish students
built the structure for their
celebration of Sukkot.
Undergraduate
The
Council, Dartmouth's stu-
dent government, adopted a
resolution deploring the ac-
tion and urging the ad-
ministration to investigate.
Several people connected
the vandalism to a photo-
graph and satiric paragraph
about the sukka which ap-
peared in the Dartmouth
Review, a student paper not
sponsored by the school,
