Sarah and Eric Gordon of
West Bloomfield proudly an-
nounce the bat mitzvah
celebration of their daughter,
Sharon Lisa Gordon, which
will take place Saturday
evening at a Havdalah ser-
vice at Congregation Beth
Achim.
Sharon will share her sim-
chah with Irina Barsky of the
Soviet Union, who together
with her parents, Dmitry and
Sofiya and grandmother
Roza, have been denied per-
mission to leave the U.S.S.R.
since 1981. Irina is denied the
right to celebrate her bat
mitzvah by a Soviet law
which forbids anyone under
16 from participating in a
religious ceremony.
The concept of a bat mitz-
vah twinning is especially
significant to the Gordon
family because Sharon's
paternal great-grandparents
immigrated from Russia to
the United States and some of
their relatives still remain in
Russia today.
In honor of her Soviet twin,
Sharon will recite a portion

is pleased to announce that as of March 1
our new offices will be located in the

Sharon Gordon To Twin
Her Bat Mitzvah Rite

Call The Jewish News

Heather
Stoneman,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Ronald Stoneman of Farm-
ington Hills, will share her
bat mitzvah with Ekaterina
Grinberg of Odessa, Ukrai-
nian SSR, USSR, Saturday at
Congregation Beth Abraham
Hillel Moses.
Ekaterina's parents, Stella
and Leonid Alexsandrovich
Grinberg, applied for an exit
visa in 1981. Her father, an
engineer, was promptly
dismissed from his job, and as
a consequence the family
lived in reduced cir-
cumstances for eight months.
Their application was rejected
and they were refused permis-
sion to be reunited with their
family in Israel without any
obvious reason.
Because she is under 16,
Ekaterina is forbidden by
Soviet law to take part in any
religious ceremony, and is,
therefore, denied her right to
be a bat mitzvah.
Heather has been writing
Ekaterina on a regular basis,
but as yet has not received a
reply. Letters and con-
gratulatory notes can be sent
to: Leonid Grinberg, PR.
Gagarina 23, kv. 1 Odessa,
Ukranian SSR, USSR, or to
her grandfather, Dr. Simon
Alexandrovich, Shlomo
Hamelekh St., 74/6, Tel Aviv,
Israel.

Sharon Gordon

from the prophets and deliver
a speech on the significance of
Havdalah. Her older brother,
Jason Samuel Gordon, will
conduct the Havdalah service
and younger siblings, Eliza-
beth Miriam Gordon and
David Lee Gordon, will assist
in the singing of Eliyahu
Hanavi.
An eighth grader at Hillel
Day School, Sharon is the
granddaughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Bernard (Eva) Gordon
and Mr. and Mrs. Leon
(Esthera) Halpern and the
great-granddaughter of Mrs.
Lazar (Mary) Hammes.
