n Israel Radio report
that three Bratslaver
Chasidim were
stabbed in the Ukraine over
Rosh Hashanah seemed to
confirm a government warn-
ing issued here Sept. 23 that
popular anti-Semitism is
sweeping Eastern Europe
and many other parts of the
world.
Israel Radio said last week
that the Chasidim were
stabbed by local assailants
in the village of Uman,
where the Chasidic
movement's founder, Rabbi
Nahman of Bratslav, is
buried.
According to the report,
four people were arrested by
the local authorities. There
were no further details.
About 2,000 Bratslaver
Chasidim from Israel and
another thousand, mainly
from the United States, had
gone to the grave site to
celebrate Rosh Hashanah.
The Israel Radio report
coincided with release of the
periodic survey of global an-
ti-Semitism by an inter-
ministerial committee head-
ed by Cabinet Secretary
Elyakim Rubinstein.
It said the Arab campaign
against mass immigration to
Israel by Soviet Jews in
many instances has trig-
gered anti-Semitism.
Meanwhile, in New York,
a survey of recent Soviet
immigrants in Israel reveal-
ed that 69 percent en-
countered some form of anti-
Semitism while in the Soviet
Union.
The study, commissioned
by the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith and
conducted last August in
Jerusalem by Hebrew Uni-
versity student Yaakov
Khazanov, showed that the
majority of the incidents
took place in Moscow and
Leningrad.
Those cities are the main
centers of organized anti-
Semitic movements such as
Pamyat.
In Israel, Cabinet Secre-
tary Rubinstein, commen-
ting on the periodic global
survey by his committee,
said in an interview that
glasnost and perestroika
have unleashed dark forces
in Soviet society. The report
noted that while anti-
Semitism has escalated, the
Soviet authorities have fail-
ed to take appropriate mea-
sures.

President Mikhail Gor-
bachev himself has yet to
speak out categorically on
the subject.
However, the Moscow City
Council is reported to have
just set up a special sub-
committee to deal with anti-
Semitism, in part a response
to the recent visit of Abra-
ham Foxman, national di-
rector of ADL, and Melvin
Salberg, ADL's national
chairman.
This special subcommittee
will report its findings to the
Soviet Parliament, accor-
ding to Myrna Shinbaum,
director of ADL's Soviet
Jewry Project.
Mr. Rubinstein said hoary
myths and allegations also
are being revived against
Jews in Eastern European

The harassment of
children accounted
for another 15
percent of the
reported incidents,
as did graffiti and
property damage.

countries. According to the
Cabinet report, religious and
nationalistic elements in
Eastern Europe are
spreading anti-Semitism on
a popular level.
Elsewhere in Europe, the
report noted the spread of
anti-Semitic literature and
a rising incidence of violence
against Jews and Jewish
property.
Mr. Rubinstein said the
widespread desecration of
Jewish cemeteries has
become "almost a plague,"
triggered by the May 9
assault on the cemetery in
Carpentras, France.
But he also sees a bright
side. According to Mr.
Rubinstein, there is a vir-
tual absence of government-
inspired anti-Semitism to-
day and a willingness by
many governments to
discuss the question of anti-
Semitism frankly and to
regard Israel as a legitimate
partner in this dialogue.
Mr. Rubinstein also found
a greater readiness by Jew-
ish organizations to recog-
nize and act against the
phenomenon.
Israel's Education Min-
istry is promoting a long-
term approach, seeking to
persuade other governments
to introduce Holocaust
