From Hope To Reality: Local
Bar Mitzvah To Meet His 'Twin'

HEIDI PRESS

News Editor

N

umerous American
b'nai and b'not mitz-
vah "twin" their
ceremonies with Soviet
Jewish teens unable to
observe this rite of passage in
their native land. Although
the American youth pray that
their counterparts will be
able someday to have the
freedom of religious expres-
sion, most only hope at the
very least for a reply to their
correspondence. In most
cases, there is none.
Kenny Kozloff will get more
than just a letter from his bar
mitzvah twin. He will have
him as an honored guest on
the bimah at his bar mitzvah
June 18 at Cong. Beth
Shalom.
The son of Dr. Ed and Sue
Kozloff of Huntington Woods,
Kenny will twin his ceremony
with Daniel Lifshitz, son of
Michael and Valentina Lif-
shitz, former Soviet Jewish
refuseniks who were granted
permission to emigrate last

September. The Lifshitzes fil-
ed for emigration visas in
1979 and subsequently lost
their jobs — he as a chemical
engineer, his wife as an
English teacher.
The Lifshitzes have settled
in New Jersey where they
have friends. Mrs. Lifshitz
was promised a job with a
publisher upon her arrival in
this country.
When the Lifshitzes arrive
in Detroit, they will be hous-
ed with members of Cong.
Beth Shalom. An afternoon of
sightseeing is planned for the
boys.
According to Samuel Semp,
the synagogue's ritual direc-
tor who is helping the
Kozloffs with the bar mitzvah
arrangements, the weekend
at the synagogue will be
declared, "Soviet Jewry
Awareness Shabbat."
"It's (the twinning) impor-
tant to the synagogue," Semp
said." We believe in suppor-
ting Soviet Jewry both in
Russia and out." Following
the bar mitzvah, there will be
a luncheon at which Soviet
Jews who already live in the

Detroit area will relate their
emigration experiences. Joan-
na Berger, director of the
English language depart-
ment at the Jimmy Prentis
Morris Building of the Jewish
Community Center, engaged
the Russians here who will
participate in the luncheon.
According to Semp, the
weekend will be low key. "We
don't want to smother them
(Lifshitzes). We want to be
sensitive to the Kozloff fami-
ly."
Another event taking place
during the bar mitzvah
ceremonies will be the pass-
ing of a Russian Sefer Torah
from family to family, part of
a Beth Shalom tradition in
which the scroll is passed
from the eldest generation of
the bar mitzvah's family to
the youngest.
Kenny wrote one letter to
Daniel while the young
Soviet Jew was still in
Moscow. It was only when
Semp brought the two
families together that the
Kozloffs had heard that the
Lifshitzes had emigrated.
