The victim, a Young Israel
congregant married two years
and the father of a year-old
child, has chronic
myelogenous leukemia
(CML), which does not res-
pond to chemotherapy or
other standard treatments,
according to David S. Tanz-
man of Oak Park, national
director of the Metropolitan
Young Israel Council's Bone
Marrow Crisis Project. "A
bone marrow transplant is
the only cure," Tanzman said.
He said donors must be 18
to 55 years of age, with no
history of hepatitis, cancer,
AIDS or heart disease. Jewish
donors are sought because
"matching bone marrow
seems to be unique to ethnic
groups." The odds of finding a
match within the group —
10,000 to one — are much
greater in the general
population.
"This is one thing on which
all Jews can unite because it's
to save a life," said Rabbi
Syme.
Singal and his committee
will be calling the various
sisterhoods and brotherhoods
to get names of potential
donors, which then will help
determine how many techni-
cians will be needed to con-
duct the screening.
Potential donors agree to
have their tissue type listed
in a national registry.

New York (JTA) — Five
Jewish activists last week
presented to three of the 10
Jewish deputies to the newly
elected Soviet Congress a
document which calls for the
creation of an independent
commission to study the pro-
blem of anti Semitism.
The text also called for the
registration of all Jewish
organizations, according to
the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry.
This is the first time that
the Soviet political leadership
has received documents from
Jewish activists requiring a
formal response.
Among the requests made a
recent conference of Jewish
activists in Riga, was a call
for specifically Jewish
deputies to that body. The
delegates said, for instance,
that representation from the

Jewish Autonomous Region
in Birobidjan is insufficient
because only one-half of one
percent of Soviet Jews live
there.
Of major concern at the con-
ference was the absence of
full recognition of Jewish
groups by the central Moscow
government. Cultural centers
and schools are accredited by
local authorities.
The conference allotted con-
siderable time to reports on
aggressive anti-Semitic ac-
tivities by various local
groups, including mention of
the "lbetotalers Movement,"
"Moldavian Karelians," and
"Zionology."
The delegates to the con-
ference disparaged using
Israeli visas to emigrate to
the United States and the
refugee transit camp in
Ladispoli, Italy.
