T

wo airline tickets were
all that separated
Sasha and Kat from
complete happiness.
The young couple are
about to get married in Oak
Park. The bride's parents
and grandparents live near-
by and will be attending. So
will the pair's new friends.
Only the groom's parents
would be missing. They live
in New York, and neither
they nor their son could af-
ford the cost of flying them
round-trip to Detroit.
It seemed to be a sad en-
ding to a story that started
out with all the charm and
romance of a sentimental
film.
Sasha Feigen's and Kat
Basov's adventure began
nine months ago in the
former Soviet Union.
Miss Basov, a musician,
and Mr. Feigen, an electri-
cian, both wanted to
emigrate. By chance, they
appeared the same day at
the U.S. Consulate to apply
for visas. They started talk-
ing.
"So they're waiting for the
papers and they find out
they're both from the
Ukraine and they like each
other," said Rabbi Yosef
Misholovin, Oak Park direc-
tor of FREE, Friends of
Refugees of Eastern Europe,
and a friend of the couple.
Soon, their friendship
blossomed into love, and the
two were engaged.
Twenty five-year-old Mr.
Feigen was the first to
emigrate, leaving four mon-
ths ago for New York, where
his parents live. Miss Basov,
21, came three months later,
settling in Detroit. Soon, Mr.
Feigen joined Miss Basov in
Michigan.

The two were eager to be
married and asked Rabbi
Misholovin to preside at
their wedding.
Discussing details of the
event, the rabbi told the
couple their parents should
accompany them to the
chuppah. This was not a
problem for Miss Basov, but
Mr. Feigen appeared
distressed.
"He looked so concerned; I
was worried maybe his
parents weren't alive,"
Rabbi Misholovin said. "So I
asked, 'What's the 'prob-
lem?' "
Mr. Feigen explained that
his parents lived in New

consulate to apply

York and could not afford
the trip to Detroit.
"I felt so bad for him,"
Rabbi Misholovin said. "I
told him, 'We're going to do
everything we can to bring
you and your parents
together (for the wedding).' "
Rabbi Misholovin appealed
to Michael Hochheiser at
Crown Travel, who in turn
contacted Northwest Airlines.
The agency agreed to give two
free tickets to Mr. Feigen's
parents so they could attend
the service.
Meanwhile, members of
FREE provided a bridal veil
and other services to help
out with the wedding, which
will be held Saturday night
at the Jimmy Prentis Morris
Jewish Community Center.
Music will be provided by
another immigrant from the
former Soviet Union, Ilya
Kozadayev. ❑
