Seek freedom

BY LESLIE KLINEMAN

Jerusalem — The small apart-
ment is filled with family and
friends. But some people are mis-
sing, an absence felt deeply by
everyone here. They are waiting
for Yaakov Rachlenko and his
family and they have been wait-
ing for 11 years.
The Rachlenko family is also
waiting — in Moscow. The Soviet
Anti-Zionist Committee insists
that everyone who wants to go to
Israel has already gone. But
Yaakov and many, many others
are still applying for visas, hoping
to be among the lucky ones who
will be granted permission to
leave.
Yaakov supports his wife and
three-year-old daughter with
part-time jobs as a watchman and
plumber. Pursuit of his trade as
an electrical engineer is denied
him by Soviet authorities because
of his desire to leave for Israel.
Twelve years ago, Yaakov, his
mother, Vinya Bergena, and sis-
ter, Mira, applied to make aliyah
to Israel. Vinya's father had been
a Habbadnik, a Lubavitcher
Hasid, and the family knew about
its religious heritage, celebrated
holidays and tried to keep the
flame of Judaism alive in their
lives despite the hostile environ-
ment. Vinya and her daughter
Mira were granted visas, but
Yaakov's application was re-
jected.
Yaakov has still not been
allowed to emigrate. He married
and had a daughter and their exit
visa applications remain pending
too. He participated in demon-
strations, was arrested several
times and spent many months in
prison for "hooliganism." He has
lived each day knowing his family
was being watched and his tele-
phone was tapped.
Mira married another Soviet
immigrant, Vladimir Weissbin,
and today they have three daugh-
ters. All of them, and Yaakov's
mother Vinya, are still waiting
for the rest of their family to be
freed.
The Soviet government con-
tinues to maintain that every Jew
who wants to leave for Israel is
gone, that millions of other Jews
in the Soviet Union want to re-
main. But Yaakov keeps apply-
ing. And everyone is still waiting.
Still hoping. Still trying.

Israelis strong
on education

Jerusalem — Like many other
schools around the world, the
school day begins quietly with
morning prayers, followed by the
clamor of bright, curious children
moving to their classroom. Dur-
ing recess, they spill out into the
hallways, racing for the playg-
round. Outside, the children,
some with kipot (skullcaps) and
others without, play together.
This is the Frankel School in
Jerusalem's French Hill
neighborhood, a project made
possible by Detroiters Sam and
Jean Frankel.
The school itself is unusual for
Israel, where the state offers two
