Todd Helfman will share his
bar mitzvah with Igor Iosovich,
in absentia, at Cong. Beth
Shalom on Sunday at 10 a.m.
Igor is the son of Iosip and
Zoya Iosovich. One year after
they applied for an exit visa,
they were turned down with no
reason given. Iosip was fired
from his job two years after the
application was filed.
Until 1970 Iosovich was chief
agronomist in a kolkhoz (collec-
tive farm). After that he
became chairman of the
kolkhoz. From 1974 to 1979 he
was assistant director of a
souvenir producing factory. His
wife Zoya worked as a
laboratory technician in a food

parents and brothers left the
Soviet Union. In March 1980,
Iosovich and his family submit-
ted emigration papers to join
them in Israel. He waited more
than a year, but no word came
from the authorities. Finally,
when he questioned local of-
ficials, he was told that if he
had not received an answer it
meant that he had been denied
Although the officials gave no
reason for the refusal, they told
Iosovich not to trouble himself
by making further inquiries.
Zoya's mother and brother were
also turned down, even though
they too had received invita-
tions from first-degree relative's
Todd is the son of David and
Marleen Helfman of Oak Park,
the grandson of Rosalind
Weisenburg, Natalie and Sid
Riskin, all of Lake Worth, Fla.
Todd will read from the Torah
for both he and Igor.
Ryan is the son of Allyn and
Nita Stearn of West Bloomfield
and grandson of Paul and Mary

ten years before his visa
Alik's mother Fira has a

secrets, they did not anticipate
any problems or complications.
They wished to join Gilman's
parents and his father-in-law

Permission was denied to
both and they lost their jobs.
