Glasnost and perestroika
have created new oppor-
tunities for Jews to live
Jewishly in Russia. B'nai
B'rith has established a
Moscow lodge. The Solomon
Mikhoels Cultural Center
has opened. A New York can-
tor came to teach master
classes. The Israeli pavilion
at the 1989 Moscow Book Fair
drew nearly 70,000 hunger-
ing for Jewish books.
The new openness has al-
lowed a flow of Jewish re-
ligious items, literature,
videos, tapes and records into
Moscow. Concerts of Jewish
music are sellouts. On Sim-
chat Torah, the great Choral
Synagogue is jammed.
Yet, Jewish life has not
changed much with the Gor-
bachev regime. Outward
signs of Jewish activity are
limited to a few synagogues
and the Mikhoels Center.
Except for the Steinsaltz
Yeshiva, there are no
established Jewish schools.
There are about 1.8 million
Jews throughout the USSR,
with an estimated 220,000 in
Moscow. Ninety-two syna-
gogues exist in the Soviet
Union, with the Choral and
the Marina Roscha the best
known in Moscow.
Attached to the Choral
Synagogue are a mikvah,
ritual slaughterhouse, mat-
zah bakery and schoolroom
where elderly congregants
gather to discuss Torah.
There also is a small library.
Services are held mornings,
evenings and on Shabbat.
Other sites of Jewish in-
terest are the Novodevichy
Cemetery; the Lenin Library,
which houses Hebraica and
Judaica; the Museum of
Literature; the Tolstoy
Museum; and the Mikhoels
Monument, a memorial to
Solomon Mikhoels, an actor
and director of the Moscow
State _Yiddish Theater who
was murdered during the
Stalin regime.

The Novodevichy Cemetery
is the burial ground for the
ashes of many Jewish revolu-
tionaries. It also contains the
grave of Isaak Ilyich Levitan,
the son of a Lithuanian rab-
bi, who became Russia's
greatest landscape painter of
the 19th Century.

The Lenin Library is home
to 6,000 rare manuscripts and
fragments of the Baron David
de Guinsburg Collection of
Hebraica and Judaica. The
Museum of Literature has the
original manuscripts of great

Russian writers, including
Ilya Ehrenburg, the best
known of contemporary
Soviet Jewish writers. In the
Tolstoy Museum, there is a
collection of Hebrew transla-
tions of Leo Tolstoy's work,
printed in Israel.
The Detroit Jewish com-
munity's Exodus Mission
Sept. 5-16 will give par-
ticipants an opportunity to
visit these Jewish sites and
institutions when they choose
the Moscow pre-mission op-
tion. The trip will include ser-
vices at the Choral Syna-
gogue, sharing experiences
with "modern Maccabees" —
refuseniks and other Jews
waiting for exit visas — and
an evening at the Mikhoels
Center.
Pre-mission options are also
available to Poland and
Hungary. Contributors of
$5,000 or more to the 1991
Allied Jewish Campaign are
eligible to participate. Follow-
ing their pre-mission trips,
the groups will convene in
Israel for a combined
celebration.
In Israel, mission par-
ticipants will meet with
Soviet Jewish immigrants
and see the absorption pro-
cess first hand. There will be
meetings with Israeli of-
ficials, cultural activities,
social events, archeological
explorations, tours and
entertainment.
Leading the Exodus Mis-
sion are Larry Jackier, Dr.
Richard Krugel, David Mon-
dry and Joe Orley.

Wexelberg-Clouser at the
Jewish Welfare Federation,

Israeli Court
Again Indicts
Able Nathan

Jerusalem (JPFS) — Peace
activist Abie Nathan has
been charged with violating
the Anti-Terror Law barring
Israelis from meeting with
PLO representatives and
was released on 10,000
shekels ($5,000) bail.
Nathan admitted to the
charges during police ques-
tioning, a few days after he
returned from two weeks of
talks in Tunis with PLO
chief Yassir Arafat.
District Court Judge
Reuven Gigi rejected a police
request to issue an order
barring Nathan from leav-
ing the country.
