Report Says Soviet Emigration at Lowest Point in 20 Years

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The Greater New York Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry
(GNYCSJ) announced that
1,307 Jews will have emi-
grated from the Soviet
Union by the end of 1983,
the lowest number in 20
years.

tant Secretary of State for
Human Rights and
Humanitarian Affairs El-
liott Abrams announced
that as of Dec. 22, only 1,284
Soviet Jews were granted
emigration visas.
Abrams pointed out that
this represents a drop of 98
percent from 1979, when
51,320 Jews were allowed to
emigrate. Herbert Kronish,
GNYCSJ chairman, proj-
ected the 1983 emigration
total of 1,307 based on the
numbers released by Ab-
rams.
Abrams said that this
"drastic decline in
Jewish emigration is
clearly the result of a de-
liberate Soviet policy and
not the consequence of a
steep deCline in applica-
tions. There are hun-
dreds of thousands of
Soviet Jews who would
leave the USSR if they
were free to emigrate.
"Yet Soviet authorities
now publicly proclaim that

question has been solved,
and that there are no longer
any Jewish refuseniks in
the Soviet Union."
Abrams pointed to alarm-
ing reports of anti-Semitism
in the Soviet Union, stating:
"The Jewish community in
the Soviet Union was
targeted for annihilation by
both the Nazis and Stalin.
For it now to be subjected to
renewed anti-Semitism,
persecution and abuse is in-
deed an unmitigated act of
evil and deserves to be con-
demned as such."
The Soviet Anti-Zionist
Committee, formed in 1983,,
"has viciously mocked the
hopes of more than 20,000
refusniks by announcing
that 'almost all of the Soviet
Jews who wanted to leave
have left.' I have met with
many Soviet Jewish refus-
niks, some who have been
waiting to emigrate for 10
or 15 years. This claim of
the anti-Zionist Committee
is a blatant lie," declared
Kronish, as he held two
thick computer lists con-
taining the names of over
20,000 Jews who have been
officially denied permission
to leave the USSR.
According to GNYCSJ,
the situation for Soviet
Jewish prisoners of con-
science, of whom there are
currently 19, has seriously
deteriorated. Anatoly
Shcharansky, who began
this year on a hunger strike
in Chistopol Prison protest-
ing his total isolation from
family and friends, is suffer-
ing from a serious heart
problem which requires ur-
gent medical attention.
Aleksander Paritsky,
Feliks Kochubievsky, and
several other prisoners of
conscience are also seri-
ously ill.
In a related develop-
ment, Inna Elbert of Kiev,
the wife of prisoner of
conscience Lev Elbert,
has been fired from her
job for "absenteeism,"
the Union of Councils for
Soviet Jews has learned.
Mrs. Elbert's six-week
hunger strike last fall in
protest of the accusations
against her husband left her
very ill with liver damage.
Last month, she had a
minor heart attack. Al-
though home for a short
time to recover, Soviet
authorities in both Moscow

NEW YORK — Martin
Kellner of Los Angeles has
been elected national
president of the American
Society for Technion — Is-
rael Institute of Technology.
Other officers elected by
the society were Dr. Jack E.
Goldman of Westport,
Conn., immediate past
president, who was elected
chairman of the bbard;
Henry Taub of Englewood,
N.J., who continues in the
post of vice chairman; Lewis
Weston of Great Neck, N.Y.,

and Kiev had assured her
that she would have her job
when she returned to work.
UCSJ President Lynn
Singer said, "As long as Lev
Elbert remains in prison,
Inna Elbert is the sole sup-
porter of her family. She
and her young son Carmi
have been deprived of the
right to survive.
"The firing of Inna Elbert
is obviously a continuation
of the Soviets' campaign
against the Elberts," said
Singer, noting that
thousands of telegrams are
being sent to Kiev by the
UCSJ and its 40 local
member councils across the
country in protest.
Meanwhile, reports from
Moscow are saying that a
