THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Soviet Jewry Movement Building

Jerry Goodman, execu-
tive director of the National
Conference on Soviet
Jewry, was in Detroit this
week to conduct a seminar
for board members of the
Jewish Welfare Federation,
Jewish Community Council
and the Detroit Soviet
Jewry Committee.
Goodman told The Jewish
News that the Soviet Jewry
movement is always re-
building. "Detroit is at the
point where it is taking off,"
he said, adding that a core of
concerned people has been
broadened," and people are
being turned on.

"Detroit found new
energy when a Larry tac-
kier and a Joel Gershenson
went to the Soviet Union.
They met real people there
and became concerned. Now
we have to turn on others."
Goodman said some
people within the move- ,
ment have become dis-
couraged as the Soviet
Union closed the immi-
gration gates. But, he
said, public officials are
being kept involved.
"His background not
withstanding, why should a
(Senator) Carl Levin go to
the Soviet Union and meet

people (Jewish refiisniks)?
He Cares, and people here
push him to care.
Goodman said the move-
ment has to keep working
because it will be iri Russia's
self-interest to let the Jews
leave.
"We have developed new
things for the movement.
Bar and Bat Mitzva twin-
ning will not get people out
of the Soviet Union but it
will keep up the morale of
Soviet Jews, especially the
young, and it keeps up our
morale. It also personalizes
the problem.
It is no substitute for
political advocacy," he
said, "but it gives people
here a better idea why
they are working for
Soviet Jewry."
Goodman said the NCSJ
is working to establish local
lawyer groups to work for
Soviet Jewry. It is an effort
to broaden the grassroots
support and show the
Soviets "they are abusing
the law, both domestic and
international."
He said the organization's
successes are small, but
worth it. "If y-ol ask a Soviet
Jew if the public pressure
has helped, he will say, 'If
you didn't do this it would
have been worse.' "
Goodman said he is not
happy that the Soviet Jews
are hostage to U.S.-Soviet
relations. "Their fate, to a
great extent, is in Reagan's
hands. The Administration
has been very good at ar-
ticulating concerns. Now it
has to find ways to translate
it into more action."
Goodman foresees in-
creasing contacts be-
tween the U.S. and the
Soviets, "and we have to
see that the Soviet Jewry
issue is high on every
agenda, on every contact
point we have with the
Russians. If it is not, then
we have to hold the Ad-
ministration accounta-
ble.
"If others care, then the
White House will care. It is
one of the few ways we have
of rescuing Soviet Jews."
He predicted that "the
economies of the U.S. and
the Soviet Union can't sus-
tain this (East-West power)
struggle. The inevitable ac-
commodation will allow
Jews to leave."
