Choir Debuts
In Capital

Washington (JTA) — "I
love coffee; I love tea; I love
the Java jive, and it loves
me. Coffee and tea, and Java
and me."
Those are the lyrics to one
of the songs performed last
week by the Soviet Union's
only professional Jewish
choir for a congressional au-
dience that included Sen.
Frank Lautenberg, D- N.J.,
and Reps. Mervyn Dymally,
D-Calif., Benjamin Gilman,
R-N.Y., Sander Levin, D-
Mich., and Lawrence Smith,
D-Fla.
The concert, held in the
Rayburn Foyer of the
Rayburn Building, was co-
sponsored by the American
Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee and the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry.
It was billed as a "thank
you" concert to lawmakers
for helping secure emigra-
tion freedom for Soviet Jews.
In addition to "Java Jive,"
popularized by the American
singing group Manhattan
Transfer, the JDC Moscow
Synagogue Choir's reper-
toire includes traditional
Russian songs and Jewish
liturgical music. The all-
Jewish, 20-member singing
group, currently on its
maiden, 10-city U.S. tour,
was recruited in 1988 by
JDC through advertising on
Soviet television and in
newspapers.
The choir was featured in
the Soviet Union in
September on a nationally
televised memorial concert
for the three young men
slain during the failed
August coup. The choir
members appeared in tux-
edos and yarmulkes
(skullcaps).
Vladimir Kraitman, a
soloist with the choir, said
he learned "Java Jive" last
summer in Elmira, N:Y.,
where he was performing at
a musical tribute to Mark
Twain.
Mr. Kraitman, 39, who
holds a bachelor's degree in
music — with a specialty in
voice — from the Gorky Con-
servatory, said that when he
returned to Moscow, he
taught "Java Jive" to every-
one else.
Boris Voinov, also a soloist
with the group, was a prac-
ticing physician who _quit to
join the JDC choir. He was
among the 20 selected out of
35 singers who auditioned.
Mr. Voinov, whose hobby
is folk singing, had sung
Jewish folk songs in the
Soviet Union prior to the
opening up of Soviet society
in recent years.
