Jonathan Pollard: Still in solitary.

Jewish Congress call for the
commutation of my sentence.
Moreover, all four major rab-
binical denominations have
also called for my release,
which is remarkable if you
think about it.
"However, for some inexpli-
cable reason, your local rab-
binical board in Detroit has
absolutely refused to say any-
thing on my behalf ... I wish I
could tell why this is the case.
But not one rabbi has had the
decency to even acknowledge
receipt of my letters."
It's a sentiment echoed by a
small-but-determined group
called the Michigan Committee
for Freedom for Jonathan
Pollard. Members have been
circulating petitions and host-
ing meetings in an effort to gain
support for Pollard. It hasn't
been easy.
"They've done nothing," com-
mittee member Barbara Racey
said of local rabbis. "Heads of
some organizations have re-
sponded to our petition drive,
but as far as the rabbis are con-
cerned, we get very little re-
sponse. Most of the rabbis here
never would even come to the
phone to talk to us."
Rabbi Efry Spectre, head of
the Michigan Board of Rabbis,
said local rabbis are not ignor-
ing the Pollard case. The board
has met just once this year and
had other, more pressing issues
to address, he said.
He added that local rabbis
have "acted individually, not
collectively" on the matter, and
that it will be considered in the
future.
"We're just not a group that

issues resolutions about evc.-y
thing," said one board member.
"I think the only time we did
that in recent memory was for
the Rodney King case.
"We're dealing with issues
like the poor and children dy-
ing of hunger, which means
Pollard isn't a priority."
Activities on behalf of Mr
Pollard are commonplace
synagogues throughout tJae
country, Pollard Freedom
Committee members say.
Many in the Jewish communi-
ty have taken issue with his

Pollard's sentence
was the harshest in
American history
for this offense.

sentence, the harshest in
American history for this crime.
But the subject makes other
Jews queasy. Mr. Pollard, they
say, does not deserve suppc
simply because he is Jewish.
He is, they point out, a con-
victed spy.
Some local synagogues hay
made efforts. Next monti
Temple Israel and Achil
Shalom Synagogue will co-ho
a talk by Dr. Morris Pollard,
Jonathan's father. One cot),-
gregation hung a poster of W.
Pollard during High Holy Day
services; another left an
ty chair on the bimah for him.
But, in general, local interest
has been minimal.
