Human rights groups express
concern for Soviet. Jewry

Washington (JTA) —
Warning that the situation
for Soviet Jewry is becom-
ing "desperate," 34Jewish,
Christian, peace, human
rights and black organiza-
tions sent a cable to Soviet
President Konstantin
Chernenko and Soviet pro-
secutors Monday urging
them to revoke a two-year
sentence against a 28-
year-old Moscow Jewish re-
fusenik.
The refusenik, Aleksandr
Yakir, an electrical
engineer, was on trial last
week after being arrested
June 18 for draft evasion
and the sentence was an-
nounced this week. An ap-
peal is scheduled to be heard '
today in Moscow at which
time it is expected to be an-
nounced whether the sen-
tence is to be served in a
labor camp, or Soviet
prison.
At a press conference at
the Union of American He-
brew Congregation's Reli-
gious Action Center here,
Rabbi David Saperstein,
co-director and counsel of
the center, said this was the
first time that "such broad
coalition of organizations
joined together to speak
out" on a single case.
The coalition, which had
sent a cable to Soviet lead-
ers before the trial, also sent
telegrams to President
Reagan, Democratic
Presidential Candidate
Walter Mondale, and Secre-
taiy'of State George Shultz
urging them to intervene on
behalf of Yakir. At the press
conference, statements
were released from the
White House and Mondale.
In a related development,
Soviet Jewist refusenik
Aleksandr Kholmiansky of
Moscow, a 34-year-old He-
brew teacher, has been ar-
rested and is being charged
with hooliganism, accord-
ing to information received
last week by the Greater
New York Conference on
Soviet Jewry in New York.
Kholmiansky, who has
been waiting for permission
to emigrate since 1978,
faces up to a year in prison
on the accusation that he
trampled on,some flowers in
a public park. He has been
in confinement since late
July, but no trial date has
been announced.
In Jerusalem last week,
Premier Yitzhak Shamir
appealed to world public
opinion to press for the re-
lease of Soviet Jewish Pris-
oner of Conscience losif Be-
* gun, who is currently serv-
ing a 12-year prison term
for "anti-Soviet agitation."
Shamir told the Cabinet
Aug. 4 that Begun's health
had suddenly deteriorated.
The Soviet authorities,
Shamir said, allowed Begun
to receive medical treat-
ment in a prison hospital
after he was held in con-

finement, but he was re-
turned to solitary 6onfine-
ment after the treatment:
Meanwhile, according to
an unconfirmed report from
the Agence France - news
bureau, a contingent of 50
members of an unofficial,
dissident peace group were
arrested in Moscow Aug. 8,
the Union . of Councils for

Soviet Jews reported. The
organization, Group for the
Establishment of Trust Be-
tween the USSR and the
United'States, was holding
a meeting in a Moscow
apartment when the build-
ing was raided by the Rus-
sian police, according to
spokesman Vladimir
Brodsky.
