THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
The Detroit Soviet Jewry
Committee of the Jewish Com-
munity Council, in conjunction
with leaders from the metropoli-
tan area's major religious com-
munities, has declared a Fast for
Freedom for Soviet Jews to take
place on Monday in Detroit.
The local effort is part of a
nationwide campaign in which
communities across the country
hold fast days on a rotating basis
to mirror the hunger strikes being
staged by many refuseniks in the
Soviet Union, the council said.
"The Soviet Union is presently
engaged in a brutal, calculated
campaign of anti-Semitism and
religious persecution designed to
break the backbone of Soviet
Jews," according to a joint state-
ment issued today by the Soviet
Jewry Committee and the council.
"We call upon people of good will
throughout the Detroit metropoli-
tan area to join us" in the fast, the
An interfaith candlelighting
ceremony honoring recently ar-
rested Soviet Hebrew teachers
and cultural activists will be held
in conjunction with the fast, ac-
cording to the council.
In a related development, four
demonstrators — two of them
rabbis — were arrested at the
Soviet Consulate in San Francisco
last Thursday after handcuffing
themselves to the iron gate sur-
rounding the consulate to protest
the arrests of the Hebrew teachers
Those arrested were Rabbi Ari
Cartun, director of the B'nai
B'rith Hillel Foundation at Stan-
ford University; Rabbi Sheldon
Lewis of Cong. Kol Emeth in Palo
Alto; Kathy Citrin, program di-
rector of the Hillel at the Univer-
sity of California at Berkeley; and
Joy Asfeld of the Stanford Hillel.
While the four were handcuffed
to the gate, a voice over the inter-
com from within the consulate
building was heard by reporters to
say, "Shalom you Jewish scum.
Across the street from consu-
late, 50 placard-waving demon-
strators chanted Hebrew songs
and demanded that Soviet Jews
be allowed to emigrate. Nine of
the demonstrators wore striped
prison uniforms and were chained
to one another.
Around their necks hung signs
with the names of recently ar-
rested Hebrew teachers including
Alexander Kholmiansky, Yuli
Edelstein, Yakov Levin and Mark
Nepomniaschy. The name of
Soviet Jewish activist Yakov
Mesh, who was also recently ar-
rested, was around the neck of an-

Jews were granted exit visas from
the Soviet Union during Novem-
ber, the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry reported. Included
in the figure, a slight increase
from the October low of 29, are 12
Muscovite Jews, marking the first
time in over seven months that
Jews from the Soviet capital were
permitted to emigrate.
