Soviet Critique

"and it tells the story of a peo-
ple consigned to second class
citizenship." He described
other evidence of Soviet bias,
including prejudicial en-
trance examinations for
Soviet universities.
Shifter concluded that even
today's low monthly total of
Soviet Jewish emigration —
800 per month — would not
have been achieved without
worldwide pressure on the
Soviets. The Gorbachev ad-
ministration, he said, is more
adept at public relations than
its predecessors, but it is also
more aware of public pressure
"so we must continue
disseminating the story of
bias against Soviet Jewry."
The dinner was marred
briefly when two persons who

had been picketing outside
the Westin came into the din-
ner to distribute leaflets at-
tacking the Council of Or-
thodox Rabbis and Sinai
Hospital. The dispute involv-
ed Rabbi David Nerenberg,
former owner of Lincoln
Kosher Meats, who wanted to
be a supplier to the hospital.
The rabbi has filed suit
against the hospital and the
council.
The rabbi and the pickets
claim to be members of the
Lubavitch community. The
Lubavitch Foundation of
Michigan issued a statement
Tuesday "disassociating
itself" from the pickets and
describing their actions as a
chilul Hashem — public
desecration.

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

The Pope visits the Rome Synagogue with Chief Rabbi Elio Toaff. The visit, in April 1986,
signaled a cautious warming in Jewish-Catholic relations.

get the Jews in trouble with
local Catholics, especially
Poles, warned Mrs. Jack Koff-
man. "Why should we get a
bad name? Why should we
make it worse for ourselves?
We're a minority."
This caused one of her
friends to counter heatedly,
"We've got to keep our
heads up and not let them
step on us!"
Some, while disagreeing
with the meeting, upheld its
right to take place. "They
have a right to meet. I don't
have to agree with it," one
woman by the swimming pool
responded as she watched her
young son and his friend play.
But Gayle Lofman was
more critical. "This guy
(Waldheim) is all of a sudden
interested in the Pope and
religion. He should have been
a little more religious 40
years ago."

Center librarian Ann
Parker compared the Pope's
"deplorable lack of sensitivi-
ty" to President Reagan's
visit to the Bitburg Cemetery
in 1985. "An invitation
should be made for the Pope
to visit the Holocaust
Memorial Center while he's
here," she suggested.
Some local groups seem to
have been caught off guard by
the meeting, and have not
begun to respond. "We have
not discussed the issue yet,"
said Father Leonard Chrobot,
co-chairman of the National
Polish-American/Jewish-
American Task Force.
The reactions of Jewish
leaders in the United States
and elsewhere to Waldheim's
reception at the Vatican were
blunt. "A cruel insult to the
memory of the victims of
Nazism" is how Burt Levin-
son, national chairman of the
