Soviet Emigre
Block Scored

Washington (JTA) — A group of
left-wing activists in Baltimore,
who are usually denouncing the
United States for its policy in
Central America, are now also
protesting the refusal of the
Soviet Union to allow the wife and
son of a former Soviet Jewish dis-
sident to join him in Baltimore.
Robert Kaufman, a Baltimore
social activist who organized the
protest among fellow opponents of
U.S. policy, spent 20 minutes in
the Soviet embassy in Washing-
ton last week in an effort to get the
USSR to permit the family of Ale-
xander Kostamarov to leave the
Soviet Union.
Kaufman said his group of 61
activists should have more "cre-
dibility" with the Soviets than
others who have supported Kos-
tamarov because, he said, they
"don't really give a damn about
Jews and only care about the
rights of dissidents in non-
capitalist countries."
Kostamarov, an electrical
engineer, came to the U.S. in 1979
after he was forced to divorce his
non-Jewish wife, Tatania, and
leave his son, Sergio, now 19. He
recently conducted a 31/2 week fast
during which he received support
from Vice President George Bush.

When Kostamarov had to give
up his fast on the orders of a doc-
tor, several Baltimore residents
decided to continue with it — each
fasting for one or more days.
Kaufman said when he read about
it, he contacted people he worked
with in an ad-hoc committee op-
posing U.S. policy in Central
America and 60 of them agreed to
join him in the fast. The most
prominent of them is Philip Ber-
rigan, an anti-Vietnam War ac-
tivist in the 1960s.

Kaufman said that he is con-
cerned that Jews are no longer as
active in "progressive" move-
ments as they once were. "I would
like to see Jews as concerned
about Catholic peasants in Cen-
tral America as they correctly are
about Soviet Jews," he said.

The ad hoc group, while main-
taining its members were not
"uncritical apologists" for the
Soviet Union, blamed the U.S. for
decline in Jewish immigration as
well as the cold war. Kaufman
said 51,000 Jews emigrated from
the USSR in 1979 but when
Washington began its "get tough"
policy the Soviet Union "got
tough" in return and emigration
declined.

But he predicted increased
emigration if the U.S. "would
reinstitute detente, follow the
Soviet lead in signing the no-
first-strike pledge and agree to a
nuclear freeze."
