ing the hora. "I nearly
flipped," Ms. Neckritz said,
adding that she sought out
their teacher to find out who
had taught the Moslem
youngsters a Jewish dance.
The teacher was a Dutch
woman, who turned out to be
one- quarter Jewish and who
has since gone back to
Learning that Ms.
Neckritz would soon be leav-
ing North Yemen and was
planning to visit Israel, the
dance teacher asked Ms.
Neckritz if she would travel
to Sadaa with her to visit a
Jewish family.
In particular, the Dutch
woman wanted to know if
Neckritz would act as a
messenger between two
sisters — one in Sadaa and
the other in Israel.
Ms. Neckritz agreed.
The family, with three
daughters and a recently
married son, lived in a two-
room hut. Like other Jews
remaining in Yemen, they
were deeply religious, Ms.
Neckritz said. The mother,
whose sister was rescued by
Operation Magic Carpet and
now lives in Rosh Ha'ayin,
baked bread and wove
baskets, and her husband
made jewelry.
Although impoverished
and limited to certain oc-
cupations, the Jews of
Yemen face their "biggest
problem" in their efforts to
remain religious, said Ms.
Neckritz. She added that
praying and studying Heb-
rew are both against the law
and must be done surrep-
The family gave Ms.
Neckritz letters and photos
for their relatives in Israel,
placing all the material in a
hollow tube sealed shut at
both ends with silver. Thus,
Ms. Neckritz became one of
several couriers through the
years who have helped the
sisters stay in touch.
The two families, which
had lost contact for more
than three decades, re-
established contact about 10
years ago, said Ms. Neckritz,
who left North Yemen in
July 1989.
A postscript to Ms.
Neckritz's two years in Nor-
th Yemen came in Israel,
where the grapevine would
often carry word of her expe-
"I didn't think it was that
big a deal that I had been to
Yemen until I would meet
Yemenite Jews in Israel, and
they would freak out and in-
vite me to their house and
invite over their whole fami-
ly," who would then ask lots
of questions, Ms. Neckritz
said. "And it happened

again and again and again."
Among those who heard of
Ms. Neckritz's experiences
were leaders of the World
Union of Jewish Students,
which is campaigning for
countries to pressure the
Yemenite government to
ease conditions for the coun-
try's Jews, according to
Rachel Tsur, coordinator of
the effort.
Ms. Tsur, interviewed by
phone from her office in
Jerusalem, confirmed recent
reports that conditions have
improved somewhat since
this year's merger of the two
Yemens, with the govern-
ment allowing Jews to
receive religious articles,
letters and visitors from
Those reports, however,
came before the current
crisis in the Persian Gulf, in
which Yemen has sided with
Iraq and opposed the
intervention of Western and
moderate Arab nations.
Although Ms. Tsur said
she couldn't speak as an ex-
pert on the implications of
the crisis, she did say, "We
can assume that it's no good
for the Jews." 1=1

Liberty Lobby
Radio Outlets

New York (JTA) — Liberty
Lobby, one of the wealthiest
and most active anti-Semitic
organizations in this coun-
t r y , has recently
strengthened its public voice
by acquiring new radio
outlets, and may soon be
boosted by a multimillion-
dollar bequest, according to
the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith.
ADL's new report, "Liber-
ty Lobby: Network of Hate,"
reports that the organization
is broadcasting bigotry and
extremism to millions of
people through a network of
satellite-transmitted radio
Liberty Lobby, based in
Washington, has gained
access to 147 radio stations
throughout the United
States by purchasing the
Sun Radio Network of Tam-
pa, Fla., in December 1989.
Programs distributed by
Sun include familiar con-
sumer-oriented call-in
shows; however, approx-
imately 45 of Sun's affiliates
have now added Radio Free
America to their regular
programming schedules, the
ADL report notes.
Since July 1988, Liberty
Lobby has also owned
roughly a half interest in the
Kayla Satellite Broad-
casting Network of Rich-
mond Center, Wis.
