Sharansky's Kin
Flown To Israel

New York (JTA) — The ail-
ing mother of Avital Sharan-
sky was airlifted on a stret-
cher out of Moscow last week
and flown via London to
Israel, where she is now a pa-
tient at Hadassah University
Hospital in Jerusalem.
The personal rescue opera-
tion of Svetlana Stiglits in-
volved an international cast
that included a rabbi, travel
agents, doctors, the Soviet
Embassy in Washington, the
U.S. State Department and
the New York State Police.
Stiglits first applied to the
Soviet authorities for a
visitor's visa a year and half
ago, after her husband died.
The American doctor who
accompanied her out of
Moscow said he thought her
combined physical and men-
tal condition would have kill-
ed her in another week. She
was described as "62, but
looking like 85."
Her prognosis is unknown
at this time.
