Joy Simmer
Is Bat Mitzvah

Joy Simmer was called to
the Torah as a bat mitzvah on
Oct. 17 at Adat Shalom
Synagogue. She shared her
special day with Evgenya
Chernobilsky, a resident of
Moscow, whose family has
been denied its Jewish
heritage.
Evgenya's family has been
refused permission to
emigrate to Israel since 1976.
Her father, Boris, has par-
ticipated in many protests on
behalf of his family's right to
leave. He has served
sentences in prison on alleg-i
ed charges of "organizing a
demonstration, striking
members of the Soviet militia
and hooliganism" and later
"beating a policeman."
The entire family con-
sisting of Evgenya, Boris, her
mother Elana, sister Anna,
and her brother' Yosif, has
been granted citizenship by
the government of Israel and
they think of themselves as
"Israeli :'itizens forced to
reside in sle USSR:" They all
speak Hebrew.
Joy has written to Evgenya
several times without
response. Inquiry has been fil-
ed with the postal service
regarding; the reason for
non-delivery.
A phone call to the Soviet
Union was made on Oct. 13.
Joy did speak to Evgenya's
mother, father and sister.
They confirmed that her let-
ters have not been received.
Joy is the daughter of Joel
and Lee Simmer. Grand-
parents are Minnie Simmer,
Robert and Thelma Gottlieb
and Sam and Sara Simmer.
Friends and relatives
traveled from Maryland,
Florida, New York, Ohio and
Ontario to be with Joy on the
occasion of her bat mitzvah.

bar mitzvah with Isai

and Irina, and grandmother,
Sonya, live with the family.
