FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1987

Continued from preceding page

U.S. during their summit in
Geneva in 1985, Jewish
groups in the U.S. began
organizing for the Soviet
leader's trip to Washington.
In a rare display of
unanimity, organizational dif-
ferences have been set aside.
Even the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry and
the Union of Councils for
Soviet Jews, two groups with
a history of intense bickering,
have joined — briefly — under
the banner of the Summit
Task Force. Also participating
are 50 national Jewish
organizations and 300 local
federations and community
councils.
"This is the event," said
Barbara Gaffen, associate ral-
ly coordinator. "The Jewish
event that will bring in peo-
ple from all over the country."
Rally organizers have
generally refrained from
estimating how many people
will show up at the Mall. But
almost all agree that Natan
Sharansky's call for 400,000
people is inflated.
"The concept," said Gaffen,
"is a beautiful one — one per-
son for each refusenik. But
unfortunately, many people
don't have the ability or the
time or the money to come to
Washington."
For now, the effect — if any
— of all this on the outcome
of the summit (and, specifical-
ly, on Soviet Jewry) is
nebulous. Summits are a com-
bination of wily realpolitik,
practical geopolitics, personal
charm and seasoned,
pragmatic diplomacy. But if
there is any substance to Gor-
bachev's glasnost, if there is
any bite to the Reagan Ad-
ministration's oft-voiced com-
mitment to Soviet Jewry, if
there is any real promise of
expanded and cordial east-
west relations, then, perhaps,
by the end of the week of
December 6, Reagan and Gor-
bachev will issue an en-
couraging, uncompromising
statement about Soviet

Jewry. Perhaps the collective
voices heard at the rally on
the Mall will be echoed in
that post-summit statement.

charter busses to Wash-
ington.
Charter companies around
the country began to enforce
the laws of supply and de-
mand as they discovered the
large need for airplanes for
Dec. 6, according to Mobiliza-
tion Co-chairman Jeannie
Weiner. Prices went up as the
rally date drew near. The first
two planes chartered by the
Council cost $39,000 apiece
for the day. The Council was
charged $43,000 for the third

plane. A fourth plane was
unavailable, according to Rab-
bi Richard C. Hertz, mobiliza-
tion co-chairman.
The airplanes were paid for
up front by the Council and
the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion, Liss said. Federation ex-
pects to end up subsidizing at
least $30,000 of the cost,
Weiner said. The rest would
be made up by passenger
receipts. At press time those
receipts had not been tallied.
