Refusenik Family
Given Exit Visas

New York (JTA) — The long
ordeal of Michael Fuchs-
Rabinovich is over. The seven-
year refusenik arrived in
Vienna on last week, accom-
panied by his wife, Marina,
and son, Mishka.
Michael and Marina Fuchs-
Rabinovich staged a hunger
strike in January to drama-
tize their plight following an
invitation by a Wellesley,
Mass., synagogue to Bar
Mitzvah their son. As it looks
now, Mishka Fuchs-Rabino-
vich will be Bar Mitzvahed as
planned at Temple Beth
Elohim in Wellesley. The
synagogue's rabbi, Ronald
Weiss — a strong activist on
behalf of Soviet Jewry along
with his entire congregation
— adopted the case of the
Fuchs-Rabinovich family and
received the support of a large
cross-section of Massachu-
setts legislators and religious
figures, both Jewish and
Christian.
The 50-year-old meteorolo-
gist was refused first in 1979
for having access to "secrets"
at work. He was stripped of
his Ph.D in mathematics, and
demoted from his position of
manager to that of simple
engineer, with a large de-
crease in pay. In January
1983, he was fired from his
job.
According to HIAS in New
York, large numbers of Soviet
Jews are arriving in Vienna
these days. During the first
three months of this year, 704
Jews have been permitted to
leave the USSR, according to
HIAS, a figure considerably
higher than last year.

Bolivia Grants
Diplomatic
Status To PLO

New York (JTA) — 'No in-
ternational Jewish organiza-
tions lodged strong protests
with the Bolivian government
last week for granting diplo-
matic status to the Palestine
Liberation Organization
which has had an office in La
Paz since 1982.
Israel Singer, secretary
general of the World Jewish
Congress, and Seymour
Reich, international president
of B'nai B'rith, expressed
shock, concern and dis-
appointment over the move
which they saw as a danger-
ous precedent for other Latin
American countries. Accord-
ing to the WJC, the Israel
Embassy in la Paz and the
local Jewish community have
also objected vehemently.
