The

Olga Kogan of Leningrad
cannot celebrate her Bat
Mitzva in the Soviet Union,
so Cindy Friedman of Cong.
Bnai Moshe will share her
Bat Mitzva ceremony
Saturday morning with
Olga "in absentia," the first
such "twinned" ceremony at
Bnai Moshe.
In preparation for the
event, Cindy and her par-
ents, Dr. and Mrs. Melvyn
Friedman, have written six
letters to Olga and her fam-
ily, and attempted on
Thursday to make phone
contact with them. Dr.
Friedman is president of
Hillel Day School.

At the ceremony, a vacant
seat on the bima will be set
aside for Olga, and special
readings will be included to
urge freedom for Olga's
family, considered to be
leading activists in the "re-
fusnik" movement.
Olga's father, Yakov,
served in the Soviet Army's
rocket division. When he
completed his service in
1969 he signed a document
stating that because of sec-
recy clearance he would be
unable to go abroad for five
years. When he applied for
permission to emigrate'
seven years later, in 1976,
he was refused due to his
previous army service. Al-
though he was told to re-
apply in six months, he was
again refused, this time
over the phone without any
reason given. He was again
refused in 1978.

Since his army service,
Yakov has only been able
to work at odd jobs. 01-
ga's mother, Tatiana, lost
her job when it was
learned that she had
applied to emigrate. The
family continues to apply
for emigration visas in
order to be reunited with
Tatiana's parents and
sister who live in Israel.

When the Friedmans
learned of the possibility of
sharing their simha with
the Kogans, they responded
enthusiastically. "It repre-
sents another step that our
synagogue is taking to in-
crease the awareness of the
plight of Soviet Jewry,
thereby stressing the im-
portance of the acceptance
of the responsibility of one
Jew for another, while also
providing support and a
feeling of solidarity to
young refusniks and their
families," they said.
Rabbi Stanley M. Rosen-
baum, spiritual leader of
Bnai Moshe, called the
Bar/Bat Mitzva "twinning"
program an important addi-
tion to the congregation's
activities on behalf of Soviet
Jewry. Through its Social
Action Committee, Bnai
Moshe has "adopted" the
Isak Tsitverblit family of
Kiev and is working to pro-
vide moral and material
support for them in their ef-
fort to gain freedom. The
committee also serves to
educate and inform the con-
gregation about new de-
velopments in the Soviet
Jewry situation and to coor-
dinate card, package, peti-
tion, telegram and letter-
writing campaigns.
Active liaison is main-
tained by the rabbi and
other committee members
with the Detroit Soviet
Jewry Committee of the
Jewish Community Coun-
cil.

The twinning program
was developed at the na-
tional level in 1979 as a
way of activating the
bond that exists between
World Jewry and Soviet
Jewry and enhancing
communal awareness of
the plight of Soviet Jews.

When the Detroit Soviet
Jewry Committee of the

Jewish Community Council
was being fOrmed in late
1981, those involved in or-
ganizing the group felt very
strongly that the DSJC
must work in a systematic
way to promote the twin-
ning program in the Detroit.
Jewish community.
Twinning became one of
the five target activities of
the Outreach Subcommit-
tee, chaired by Bnai Moshe
member Jerry Rogers.
Diane J. Klein and Ellie
Slovis were asked to take
charge of the program,
