Five years after being given
an aliyah in absentia, Olga
Kogan of Albany, N.Y., will be
called to the Torah on Satur-
day at Congregation B'nai
Moshe to receive her long-
awaited honor.
Olga was twinned with Cin-
dy Friedman in 1982 at her
bat mitzvah at Congregation
B'nai Moshe. At that time
Olga and her parents, Yakov
and Tanya Kogan, were try-
ing to get visas to leave the
Soviet Union. The Kogans
were permitted to emigrate in
November 1987.
Olga's twin's brother, Jef-
frey Friedman, will be
celebrating his bar mitzvah
the same time as Olga's
aliyah.
The Friedmans have been
unable to make contact with
Jeff's twin despite numerous
attempts at mailings and
phone calls.
"After having seen the suc-
cessful outcome for the Kogan
family of community pressure
on the Soviet Union as well as
in Washington, we feel very
frustrated at not receiving
any response to our letters or
calls," Susan Freidman said.
"However, Olga's presence at
Jeff's bar mitzvah just
strengthens our determina-
tion that we can succeed in
finding our lost twins."

Amy Jablin
Is Bat Mitzvah

Amy Jablin, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Alan Jablin,
will share her bat mitzvah
with Riva Baazova during
services at Beth Abraham
Hillel Moses on Saturday.
Riva is the daughter of
Rafael and Zina Baazov of
Georgian SSR, USSR. Riva's
parents first applied for an ex-
it visa in 1978 and were refus-
ed in 1979 because of army
service. Riva will be 13 this
year, but because it is forbid-
den by Soviet law for anyone
under 16 to take part in a
religious ceremony, she will
be denied her right to be a bat
mitzvah. Baazov's sister and
father both live in Israel.

Two To Twin
B'not Mitzvah

Carrie Fenton and Jennifer
Franklin will celebrate their
b'not mitzvah with their
Soviet twin, Sofya Gorokhov,
8 p.m. Sept. 9 at Temple
Israel.
Sofya's family has been try-
ing to leave Russia since
February 1988. Her father,

David, is qualified as a
physicist and a mathemati-
cian, but since applying for
his exit visa he is unable to
find work in his field. Her
mother, Asya, is an engineer
and also has been unable to
find employment. The
Gorokhovs are religious Jews.
David and Asya speak
English, and the whole fami-
ly speaks Hebrew.
Carrie and Jennifer have
written to Sofya, but have
been unable to make contact
with the family.

Study Shows
Symptoms Of
Occupier In IDF

New York (JTA) — A study
completed in Israel on the
behavior of occupying armies
in modern history indicates
that the Israel Defense Force
is beginning to exhibit
psychological symptoms of be-
ing occupiers.
The study, conducted over a
four-year period by Dr. Yoram
Peri of the Jaffee Center for
Strategic Studies at 1bl Aviv
University evaluated the
psychological effects Israel's
occupation of the West Bank
has had on the IDF.
Peri found that a threefold
process occurs in the oc-
cupier's psyche, beginning
with the development of a
political-military doctrine
within the military ranks
This is followed by a self-
image crisis among the
_1
soldiers, leading to a crisis in
civil-military relations.
Peri found that civil-
military relations are most
strained in a "citizen's army"
where a majority of the •
population performs military
service. The problem, he said
is exacerbated when opinion
is divided on the occupation
and subsequent resentment
ual
of the army's actions by a seg-
ment of the society.
Peri, who is deputy editor of
the Israeli daily Davar, said
that without societal support
the military is compelled to
