LONDON (JTA)— An es-
timated 12,000 people par-
ticipated Sunday in Brit-
ain's largest-ever demon-
stration for Soviet Jewry.
The protesters, forming a
two-mile column, marched
to the Soviet Embassy with
a petition expressing "deep
concern about our brethren
in the Soviet Union." The
marchers included Jewish
leaders from more than 16
countries.
The petition, drawn up by

condemn these illegal and
inhumane acts which con-
flict the the Helsinki and
Madrid accords, which viol-
ate the Soviet Constitution
and which offend against
national justice.
Immediately after the
march, the Jewish leaders
began a two-day session of
the Presidium of the World
Conference on Soviet
Jewry. Participants include
Edgar Bronfman, president
of the World Jewish Con-
gress; Leon Dulzin, chair-
man of the World Zionist
Organization; and Greville
Janner MP, president of the
Board of Deputies of British
Jewry.

In a related develop-
ment, Prime Minister
Margaret Thatcher
pledged her "absolute
support" and that of her
government to ease the
plight of Soviet Jewry.

Dulzin, presidium chair-
man, said Mrs. Thatcher
had spontaneously stated
that she and her govern-
ment would "do absolutely
everything in support of our
just cause."
Dulzin said that the doors
of the Soviet Union were
now closed to Jewish emig-
ration.
Julius Berman, chairman
of the Conference of
Presidents of Major Ameri-
can Jewish Organizations,
said the U.S. Administra-
tion had told American
Jewry that because of the
depth of the freeze in U.S.-
Soviet relations, Washing-
ton currently had little
leverage in Moscow over
Soviet Jewry and that world
Jewry at this time should
enlist the support of West-
ern Europe and the Third
World.
Earlier, at the end of its
proceedings, the
presidium issued a com-
munique assuring Soviet
Jewry that they were not
alone in their struggle
and that the Jewish
people throughout the
world stood "united be-
hind them, supported by
governments, parlia-
ments and significant
political, religious, aca-
demic and trade union
groups."
To the government of the
Soviet Union it declared:
"Reopen the gates for those
Jews wishing to join their
brethren; release from
prison all those Jews whose
solo crime is a desire to go to
their homeland and enable
them to maintain their cul-
tural and religious identity;
put an end to the oppressive

NEW YORK — An ar-
cheologist in Israel and a
California physicist an-
nounced this week that they
may have found major Bi-
blical artifacts in Israel.
Adam Zartel of Kibutz
Ein Shemer and Haifa Uni-
versity has found what is
believed to be the altar
Moses and Joshua com-
manded the Israelites to
build on Mt. Ebal.
The alter is believed to be
3,200 years old and was
found on a 2,700-foot moun-
tain in Samaria.

Meanwhile, Lambert
Dolphin, a geophysicist, be-
lieves that his team has dis-
covered the tomb of Herod
the great in the base of a,
tower in the Judean Hills,
Dolphin's team used
sophisticated rock-
penetrating radar, sonar
devices and seismic resis-
tance equipment to discover
the hidden chamber in the
tower.

New nobility is an act of
power.
