UNITED HEBREW SCHOOLS

on West 12 Mile Rd., East of Wiser Rd.

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

ment, Wallace spoke to a
Soviet Jew who teaches
English. The professor said
that few Jews in the USSR
want to study Hebrew, most
preferring to learn Engish.
Later, his students laughed
at Wallace's question about
discrimination against Jews.
"We don't think about this
problem because it doesn't
exist for us," said one stu-
dent.
Wallace concluded that al-
though there is a subtle form
of anti-Semitism that exists
in the Soviet Union today,
those Jews who have not
applied for emigration or are
not refuseniks "apparently
live more or less satisfying
lives there."
"How does he know that?"
asked Korey. "There was no
poll or computation con-
ducted. He merely subtracts
the number of 400,000 people
who have made the first step
in the emigration process and
assumes that there are
1,500,000 Soviet Jews who
accept the regime. It takes a
lot of courage and determina-
tion to apply for an exit visa,
considering the situation in
the Soviet Union. This kind
of presentation is distorted."
Korey also noted that in-
terviewing 11 established
Soviet Jews while talking
with only a few activists also
presents an unbalanced pic-
ture.
Rosenberg of the Union of
Councils For Soviet Jews
pointed out that no mention
was made of the Soviet
Jewish prisoners of con-
science, or well-known dissi-
dents such as Natan
Shcharansky and Dr. Iosef
Begun who suffered in pris-
ons for years because of their
feelings about their heritage.
"Where was all of that?
This show gave a cotton
candy impression of the situ-
ation," he said.
To balance the story, Wal-
lace said he presented the re-
fusenik side by interviewing
the Brailovskis. However, his
goal, he said, was to deviate
from the typical kind of
coverage that the refuseniks
"have received and deserve"
and feature Jews who are liv-
ing comfortably and succeed-
ing in the Soviet Union.
"Why isn't the other side of
the story ever covered?" he
said. "I deplore the Soviet
Union's policy of denying exit
visas. But as a reporter, I try
to find interesting Stories and
shed light on our society and
world."
Thus far, Wallace said re-
sponse to the segment has
been quite favorable. How-
ever, he said, "We don't cal-
culate what effect a story has
with our audience. That's up
to the public. We don't an-
ticipate or second-guess."
By embarking on a story
with a foregone conclusion,

said Jerry Strober of the
NCSJ, Wallace presented a
distorted perspective on
Soviet Jewry.
"There are many Jews in
the Soviet Union who want to
learn Hebrew," he said. "Be-
gun was imprisoned for
teaching Hebrew. Wallace
doesn't talk about this. He
doesn't talk about the penal-
ties for learning or teaching
Hebrew.
"I don't deny there are
Jews in the Soviet Union who
are satisfied," said Strober.
"But we all know that on the
other side of the coin are
hundreds of thousands of
people who want to leave and
aren't allowed to and are per-
secuted for wanting to leave.
It's ludicrous for CBS and
Mike Wallace to broadcast
that a million and a half
Soviet Jews are satisfied.
That's a preconceived notion."

Israeli Company
To Sue Army

Tel Aviv (JTA) — An Is-
raeli firm said Tuesday it
would sue the U.S. Army for
suddenly cancelling an $8
million order for gas masks
after the first consignment
was delivered.
According to Menahem
Kalir, general manager of
Rabintex Industries in Bet
Shean, the cancellation was a
reprisal for Jonathan Pol-
lard's spy activities in the
U.S. Kalir denied as "base-
less" the Army's claim that
the contract was terminated
because of late deliveries. He
said the cancellation order
was received immediately
after the first batch of masks
was received in the U.S.
early in March.
Kalir said his firm invested
$2 million to produce the
masks. Cancellation of the
contract may force the plant
to close down, adding mass
unemployment to the trou-
bles of Bet Shean, a develop-
ment town, he said.

Shcharansky
Calls For Deal

Jerusalem (JTA) — Natan
Shcharansky proposed that
the West offer the Soviet
Union a quid pro quo for eas-
ing emigration restrictions
for Soviet Jews. For Jewish
emigration of 10,000 a year,
Moscow would be rewarded
with a broadening of scien-
tific and cultural ties.
If 50,000 Jews are allowed
to leave each year, the U.S.
should cancel the Jackson-
Vanik amendment which
links Jewish emigration to
most favored nation trade
status for the USSR,
Shcharansky told some 1,500
