Doctors Win Suit Against Baylor ,
for Bias in Saudi Program
cze

HOUSTON (JTA) — Two

0 Jewish
anesthesiologists have been
vindicated in their suit that
accused Baylor College of
,Medicine of unlawfully dis-
criminating against them
by not allowing them to par-
ticipate in the Baylor rota-
° tion to the King Faisal Hos-
pital in Saudi Arabia.
U.S. District Court Judge
James DeAnda ruled last
week that there was inten-
tional discrimination on the
basis of religion. The two
doctors were identified as
Lawrence Abrams and
Stuart Linde.
In his findings, the judge
ordered a permanent in-
junction prohibiting Baylor
from discrimination on the
basis of religion. "We must
• thereby permanently enjoin
the defendant from exclud-
, ing qualified Jews from the
King Faisal rotation pro-
gram." DeAnda ruled.
He also awarded back pay
• to both doctors to compen-
L sate for the difference in
wages received as members
of the Baylor staff as op,
posed to what they would
have received if they had
'been permitted to partici-
pate in the King Faisal pro-
} gram. The total amount of
awards to Abrams was
$156,840.30. The awards to
Linde totaled $248,982.08.
DeAnda's findings noted
that the objective criteria
established by Baylor for
) participation in the pro-
' gram regarding anes-
thesiologists are that the
person must be a member of
the Taylor Department of
Anesthesiology faculty and
that the person must be cer-
tified by the American
Board of Anesthesiology or
hold an equivalent foreign
> certification recognized by
L the board.
According to DeAnda,
"The evidence clearly estab-
lished that both plaintiffs
met the objective criteria

Appeal Issued to Russia
to Reopen Gates for Emigres

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Israel President Chaim
Herzog and Premier Yit-
zhak Shamir urged the
Soviet Union to re-open its
gates to the immigration of
Jews who wish to join their
families in Israel.
Their statements on the
eve of the International
Week of Solidarity with
Soviet Jewry, which began
Thursday, emphasized the
mounting concern in Israel
over the plight of Jewish
"prisoners of conscience"
and other harassed and
threatened with imprison-
ment for such "crimes" as
studying the Hebrew lan-
guage or applying for exit
permits.

David Hotel. The lunch
duplicated the rations fed
political prisoners in Soviet
jails and labor camps.
Hundreds of Hebrew
University students sent
solidarity postcards to
Jewish families in Russia
this week.
Meanwhile, school chil-
dren paraded at dawn Tues-
day outside the Russian
Church in downtown
Jerusalem with placards
demanding "Let my People
go." The Chief Rabbinate
has ordered special prayers
for Soviet Jews to be recited
at all synagogues this
Saturday.

God described Himself to
Moses as "I am that I am."
