Ethiopian Jewish Aliyah
Is Up, Soviets' Is Off

Jerusalem (JTA) — More
than a thousand Ethiopian
Jews made aliyah last mon-
th — the highest number
since the end of Operation
Moses six years ago.
But immigration from the
Soviet Union dropped by
more than 60 percent, ap-
parently because of the mis-
sile attacks on Israel by Iraq.
The Jewish Agency for
Israel reported that a total of
14,456 immigrants arrived
in Israel in January, in-
cluding 13,360 JeWs from
the Soviet Union, down from
an all-time high of 35,000 in
December.
In New York, the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry
put the Soviet aliyah total at
12,730. And the Hebrew
Immigrant Aid Society re-
ported that an additional
1,300 Soviet Jews emigrated
to the United States.
While Jewish Agency offi-
cials were pleased with the
high Ethiopian aliyah total,
up from 530 in December,
they said the situation of
some 20,000 Jews waiting in
Addis Ababa is still des-
perate.

One official said it would
be technically possible for
more Ethiopian Jews to
leave, but the Ethiopian
government has set an unof-
ficial quota and issues exit
visas on that basis.

In New York, Rabbi
Daniel Allen, assistant ex-
ecutive vice chairman of the
United Israel Appeal, said
the Jewish Agency is now
drawing up a budget that
anticipates the arrival of
15,000 Ethiopian Jews bet-
ween April 1 and Dec. 31,
and 225,000 Soviet Jews
during the same period.

The Israeli Consulate in
Moscow last month issued
about 650 visas each day,
down from about 1,000 a day
in the last three months of
1990. The Jewish Agency
expects an average of 500 to
600 Soviet immigrants to ar-
rive each day for the near
future, until the emergency
footing in Israel has ended.
Between 80,000 and
100,000 Soviet Jews now
hold Israeli visas and are
expected to depart over the
next few months.

New York (JTA) — The
American Jewish Congress
has begun a campaign to
facilitate American vol-
unteer work in Israel during
the Persian Gulf war crisis.
"There has been an out-
pouring of concern and soli-
darity for the people of Israel
among many Americans,"
according to Henry
Siegman, executive director
of the AJCongress. "They
have offered to fly to Israel
and help out in those areas
in which they are most
needed."
A requirement for par-
ticipation is a working
knowledge of Hebrew or
Russian. Volunteers must be
prepared to spend a
minimum of two weeks in
Israel, the AJC announced.
Mr. Siegman stressed the
need in Israel for
psychiatrists, psychologists,
nurses and social workers.
There is a special need for
volunteers who can serve as
attendants in health care in-
stitutions, nursing homes
and institutions caring for
the disabled and for young
children, he said.
American volunteers can
also assist in relieving

Israeli health care profes-
sionals who have been work-
ing under great stress
around the clock.
Further information about
the AJCongress program
can be obtained by calling
Benita Gayle-Almeleh at
(212) 879-4500.

Cemetery
Desecrated

London (JTA) — A Jewish
cemetery in Manchester was
defaced with swastikas re-
cently, but the leadership of
the 40,000-member Jewish
community in that midlands
industrial city decided not to
publicize the desecration.
The Nazi symbol was
scrawled on 34 headstones at
Crumpsall cemetery, an old
Jewish burial ground still in
use. Local Jewish leaders
said it was the work of
"yobs" — British slang for
young hooligans — not
organized neo-Nazis.
A spokeswoman for the
Manchester Jewish Repre-
sentative Council said that
to have made it public would
cause great pain to the
community, especially
among the elderly.
