Israel To Get More
Funds For Soviet Jews

CONTROL

Valid from 4/24 - 4/29

I didn't know how to break
the news to him that com-
pared to most of my genera-
tion, I was already an expert.
Finally, waiting in line at
the airport in Europe to go
through passport control, a
very attractive young woman
walked right in front of me,
murmuring her apology that
"he hates to wait in lines."
Since she was alone, I couldn't
figure out who "he" was un-
til I noticed that she was car:
rying a large handbag with a
small poodle's head and neck
visible.
Then I noticed that she was
carrying two passports. "Does
he have his own passport?" I .
asked kiddingly. "Oh yes,"
she said, showing me a
passport with the name
"Elliot" taped on the front.
"Is he declaring anything?"
I asked.
But she was already giving
her passports to the officer in
the little booth, and the look
on his face was priceless when
he looked at the photo,
started to stamp it,, and then
stared at Elliot.
When I slipped him my
passport a moment later, I
apologized that I was alone,
having left my goldfish at
home. He did not seem
amused.

Even a trip as emotionally
wrenching as the visit with
Jewish refugees in Vienna
and Ladispoli had its lighter
moments.
At a small park in
Ladispoli, we wanted to chat
informally with the
transmigrants but language
was a problem. An elderly
woman asked if any of us
spoke Yiddish, and I nodded
yes. Within seconds, I was
surrounded by dozens of peo-
ple, mostly elderly, who began
asking me about their cases
and begging me for an
American visa. In my halting
Yiddish, I tried to explain
that our group had come to
observe the situation in Vien-
na and Ladispoli and report
back on it when we returned
to the United States. I said
that I was a. journalist and
would write about what I saw.
A few minutes later, an old
man from Moscow with a
mischievous twinkle in his
eye, observed to a. friend, in
Yiddish, that he hoped I was
a better writer than.Yiddish-
speaker. I laughingly pointed
a finger at him and said,
again in Yiddish, "I heard
what you just said about me."
He smiled and asked, "is it
possible that all young
Jewish men in America speak
Yiddish as badly as you?"

Washington (JTA) — Israel
will receive a larger share of
the $75 million being raised
to aid the resettlement of
Soviet Jews, under an agree-
ment hammered out last
week by the Jewish Agency
for Israel, the United Jewish
Appeal and the Council of
Jewish Federations.
The deal was announced in
a joint statement by Mendel
Kaplan, chairman of the
Jewish Agency Board of Gov-
ernors, and Simcha Dinitz,
chairman of the World Zionist
Organization-Jewish Agency
Executive.
The statement was issued -
after a meeting of the Jewish
Agency Executive convened
to discuss the $75 million
"Passage to Freedom" cam-
paign begun earlier this year
to meet the needs of Soviet
Jews immigrating both to
Israel and the United States.
The meeting was held in
the wake of angry comments

by Dinitz, in an interview
with the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, that Israel was being
treated as a "junior partner"
in the nationwide fund-
raising effort on behalf of
Soviet emigres.
Dinitz said that rather than
receiving half of the funds
raised in the special cam-
paign, as promised, Israel is
actually receiving only 25
percent.
The Executive agreed last
week to an "adjustment" of
how monies raised in the
campaign are to be dis-
tributed between Israel and
the United States.
According to the original
terms of the campaign, half of
the funds raised were to re-
main in the United States to
help the cities expecting the
largest influx of immigrants.
The other half was to be us-
ed for "overseas needs," which
included not only absorption
of Jews in Israel, but the work
