GRAND ILLUSIONS

such prominent leaders.

"That's the card we're going
to play," says Yuri Shtern,
spokesman for the Soviet
Jewry Zionist Forum, an um-
brella group formed last
spring to advance the in-
terests of Soviet Jews in Israel
and the Diaspora.
Shtern says those promi-
nent Soviet Jews involved
with the Forum will use their
international star power to
lobby the Israeli government
for better jobs and housing, to
raise funds in the Diaspora,
and to travel to transit points
in Europe to try to convince
recent Soviet emigres to come
to Israel rather than the
United States.
"We are focusing on dif-
ferent angles of the redemp-
tion process," says Shtern,
who came to Israel from
Moscow in 1981.
One angle is to try to
develop among Russians in
Israel a sense of community
and a volunteer ethic, two
things that were "destroyed
in Russia decades ago," accor-
ding to Shtern.
A resurrected community
spirit "will be a catalyst for
community-building projects
in Gorbachev's USSR," he
says.
Most Russian Israelis doubt
that the liberal mood in the
Soviet Union will be long-
lived. But while the oppor-
tunity exists, Jewish life
should be encouraged, Shtern
says.
While giving the current
regime in the Kremlin better
grades than its predecessors,
Shtern is not ready to aban-
don the U.S. Jackson-Vanik
law linking trade between the
superpowers with freedom of
emigration from the Soviet
Union.
He expects up to 40,000
Jews to leave the USSR in
1989, but says the problem of
free emigration has not been
solved for two reasons: "First,
the Soviet Union still has no
freedom of emigration pro-
tected by law. The preactical
policy can be reversed in a
moment. Second, we have
thousands of people waiting
in refusal, some for then
years•"
Members of the Forum
want as much aliyah as possi-
ble, but they believe that coer-
cion of Soviet Jews — such as
mandatory direct flights bet-
ween Moscow and Tel Aviv —
is not the answer.
Says Shtern: "We don't
believe that direct flights,
without a profound improve-
ment of the absorption
system in Israel and a Jewish
educational campaign in the
Soviet Union, will bring a
single immigrant to Israel."
