For USSR Jews
Jerusalem (JTA) — Natan
Shcharansky charged last week
that the Israeli government is
avoiding a comprehensive public
campaign on behalf of Jews in
the Soviet Union.
His statement, before a
Knesset • subcommittee on
Soviet Jewry, was Shcharan-
sky's first criticism of Israeli
policy since his arrival here last
February 11 after nearly nine
years in Soviet prisons and labor
The internationally famous
aliya activist and dissident told
the Knesset panel that Israel
should exert heavier pressure on
the U.S to act for Soviet Jews
"so that at the next summit, the
American press will write more
about the anti-Soviet
demonstrations and less on the
dress of Mrs. Gorbachev."
His caustic comment was a
reference to the excessive media
attention given the costumes of
the wife of Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev when she accom-
panies her husband on visits to

ml Aviv (JTA) — The strike of
hospital nurses ended last week
after 18 days of a work stoppage
which caused harm and distress
to the public, especially those in
need of hospital care.
Representatives of the 11,000
hospital nursing staff angrily re-
jected suggestions that they had
failed in their efforts and had to
end their work stoppage without
obtaining any of their demands,
except one they were offered on
the second day of their action —

tions and ways to attract new
nurses to the profession.
