true value lies in reliability

Your spa should perform for

FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 1988

Stewart Golden, son of Lin-
da and Joel Golden, and
David Schultz, son of Arlene
and Jack Schultz, will twin
the observance of their b'nai
mitzvah Saturday at Adat
Shalom Synagogue with
Alexander Varvak, son of Nel-
ly and Mark Varvak of Keiv.
Mark Varvak, a scientist in
applied mechanics, his wife,
Nelly and their son Alex-
ander were denied permission
to emigrate to Israel in 1979.
Their situation as refuseniks
quickly deteriorated and after
a few years, they divorced and
Varvak moved in with his
mother, but continued to see
his son regularly.
He became involved in the
refusenik community in Kiev
and in April 1980 he signed
a joint letter of appeal to the
Jewish people in Israel and
the Diaspora, describing the
deteriorating situation in
Kiev where the KGB increas-
ed its interrogations of Jews
in Keiv and made threats and
arrests.
Stewart and his family
recently visited the Soviet
Union and spent some time
with the Varvaks. They were
advised that Varvak
emigrated and is living in
Brooklyn, N.Y. Nelly and
Alexander live with Nelly's
mother and would emigrate if
her mother would also leave.
Nelly is an electrical engineer
and her mother returned to
school to become a
pediatrician.
David and Steward have
written to Alexander and
they will attempt to reach the
family by phone.

B'not Mitzvah
Are Celebrated

HOT SPRINGS SPAS are
engineered for the reality of
daily use. If our design
philosophy could be summed
up in one word, it would be
SIMPLICITY.

Emily Beth Grey, daughter
of Ruth and James Grey, and
Lindsay Rose Blau, daughter
of Judith and Irving Blau,
will twin the observance of
their b'not mitzvah at Temple
Israel at 10:30 a.m. on Satur-
day with Sofya Gorokhov,
daughter of Asya and David
Gorokhov of Moscow.
EMily will celebrate her bat
mitzvah with her sister
Rachel, brother Jeffrey and
grandparents Lydia and Ar-
chie Grey and Sarah and
John Nemon and great-
grandmother, Frieda Nemon.
Sharing in Lindsay's bat
mitzvah will be her sisters Ali
and Lainie and grandparents
Lee and Harry Blau and Max
Feinberg.
Mr. Gorokhov is a physicist
and a mathematician, but
since applying for an exit visa

in 1981, he is unable to find
work in his field. The reason
for refusal is "secrecy." An
engineer, Mrs. Gorokhov is
also unable to find profes-
sional employment. The
Gorokhovs are religious Jews
and speak English and
Hebrew.
Emily and Lindsay have
written letters to Sofya but
have received no response.

Sarah Walker
Shares Rite

Sarah Walker, daughter of
Robert and Sandra Walker of
Troy, will twin her bat mitz-
vah 10 a.m. Saturday with
Eugena Galperina of Moscow,
USSR. The bat mitzvah will
takeplace at Troy Jewish Con-
gregation. Rabbi Ernst Con-
rad will officiate.
Eugena's father, Lev, is an
engineer, but since applying
for a visa in 1983 he has been
unemployed. Eugena also
lives with her mother, Sonia,
an economist and a brother,
Yakov.
The family had repeatedly
been denied exit visas
because there was "no reason
to leave the USSR." The
Galperins have recently been
given permission to leave the
USSR.

B'NAI B'RITH timm

Haber Award
Winners Named

The B'nai B'rith Hillel
Commission has selected the
B'nai B'rith Hillel Founda-
tions at Michigan State
University, the University of
Michigan and Oberlin Col-
lege to receive the 1988
William Haber Awards "for
programs of quality for the
Jewish campus community."
The awards, named in honor
of Dean Willian Haber of the
University of Michigan,
recognize innovative projects
that may serve as models for
similar programs on other
campuses.
The B'nai B'rith Hillel
Foundation University of
Michigan Program was "Talk
to Us." It is a student theater
troupe that creates shows in
response to concerns on cam-
pus such as "JAPS," dating,
homesickness, racism, sexual
assault, and social and
academic pressures.
The B'nai B'rith Hillel
Foundation Michigan State
University program was the
Hillel Jewish Thlevision Pro-
gramming Project, which pro-
vides a creative outlet for
students in the performing
arts and produces Jewish pro-
gramming in the Greater
Lansing area.
