"I believe in personalized service"

intergovernmental affairs.
Now, Wilson is working
hard to see that others do the
same. As the hunger strike
moves into full-swing, her kit-
chen table is cluttered with
lists of those interested in
participating in the fast. And
she never speaks to groups
without bringing along a set
of postcards addressed to
Dubinin, urging that the
Kosharovskys be granted ex-
it visas.
"We're trying to bombard
the senators, congressmen
and Dubinin with cards and
letters," she said.
Through a connection in
Israel, Wilson has managed
to get word to Kosharovsky
that he will be joined in his
long hunger strike by Detroit
residents.
While participating in the
recent Washington Mobiliza-
tion for Soviet Jewry, Wilson
saw someone carrying a sign
demanding freedom for the
Kosharovsky family. After the
two spoke, Wilson learned of
Enid Wurtman, who writes
regularly about Soviet Jewry
for The Jerusalem Post, and
also has been very active on
behalf of the family.
After calling Wurtman,
Wilson discovered that the
Jerusalem resident is in con-
stant telephone contact with
the Kosharovskys. She has
asked the Jerusalem resident
to convey information about
the strike to the refusenik
because, despite Wilson's own
numerous attempts to phone
the family, most of these have
been unsuccessful.
From Wilson's description
of the fortitude and courage
evinced by the Kosharovskys,
the local strike is nothing if
not a tribute to the refusenik
family who, despite constant
harassment, are determined
to make aliyah.
The Kosharovskys are, she
said, the kind of people who
"have a spirit that won't be
crushed."

Eban Rankles

New York (JTA) — A Reform
synagogue's scheduling of a
lecture by Israeli Knesset
member Abba Eban, tradi-
tionally a popular draw on
the Jewish lecture circuit, has
angered some members of the
Chattanooga, Tenn., Jewish
community.
But according to Orthodox
Rabbi Michael Katz, the beef
is not with the content of
Eban's message, but the tim-
ing. Eban is scheduled to
speak Thursday, April 7,
which is the seventh night of
Passover and thus traditional-
ly a holy day.
