has done all this alone
because everyone else was
afraid."
Khassin will visit Detroit
next week as part of her nine-
city North American cam-
paign for the release of Soviet
Jews. Khassin will provide
the latest information on
refuseniks in the Soviet
Union, and an update on the
situation of Soviet Jews now
in Israel.
She will speak to the public
8 p.m. Wednesday at the
Maple/Drake Jewish Com-
munity Center.
Khassin provided a conduit
for aid to prisoners, traveled
to remote locations to gather
evidence towards their legal
defense and for campaigns for
Western public support, and
became the recognized expert
in Soviet criminal law for
political cases.
Her small apartment was
the place where Natan
Sharansky's mother received
the news of his release and
Lev and Inna Elbert carried
out their 45-day hunger
strike.
Under constant surveil-
lance, threatened with arrest
and even murder, this
46-year-old housewife became
known among refuseniks as
the "Stone Wall."

Her Detroit visit is being
sponsored by he Friends of
the Soviet Jewry Education
and Information Center and
the Israel Programs Center.

Reagan Gets
Haggadah

Washington (JTA) — A
group of former Soviet Jewish
refuseniks presented Presi-
dent Reagan with a Passover
Haggadah on Tuesday, in ap-
preciation of "his extraor-
dinary efforts on behalf of
Soviet Jewry."
Herman Branover, a pro-
fessor at Ben-Gurion Univer-
sity of the Negev and chair-
man of Shamir, the associa-
tion of Jewish religious pro-
fessionals from the Soviet
Union, told reporters after
the brief Oval Office

was an appropriate gift to
Reagan.
