Moscow Synagogue -4
Attacked Again

New York (JTA) — The
mood among groups that
monitor Jews in Russia has
grown more fearful since the
main Moscow synagogue
was attacked this week for
the second time in a month.
Rabbi Pinchas
Goldschmidt, chief rabbi of
Moscow, told the World Jew-
ish Congress that shortly
before dawn early last week,
youths reportedly wearing
black uniforms threw bricks
through two of the syn-
agogue windows and tried to
break down the main doors.
Rabbi Goldschmidt, who is
now in Israel, received the
report from the synagogue's
caretaker, who witnessed
the attack and called the
The police showed up after
the perpetrators had already
fled, as happened after the
earlier attack in June.
Mark Levin, executive di-
rector of the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry,
said, "I think this (second at-
tack) highlights what we've
been saying for a long time
now, that popular anti-Semi-
tism remains a real threat, and
it is articulated in many differ-
ent forms."
Asked if Jews in Moscow
are apprehensive, he said, "I
think they are obviously
concerned about the repeat
of an incident."
Mr. Levin spoke to

Michael Chlenov, co-
president of the Vaad, which
represents Jewish groups in
the former Soviet Union.
Mr. Chlenov told him that
the Vaad has been working
with the synagogue leader-
ship to work out an agree-
ment to provide better pro-
tection for the synagogue.
"We have informed our
State Department about this
as well as the Russian Em-
bassy in Washington," Mr.
Levin said.
Jewish groups have been
in contact with the Russian
ambassador to Washington,
Vladimir Lukin, requesting
a 24-hour police guard.
Rabbi Goldschmidt re-
quested police protection for
the synagogue at the time of
the earlier attack, which oc-
curred June 13, but nothing
But Rabbi Adolf Shayevit-
ch, chief rabbi of Russia,
reached at home in Moscow,
said that some municipal
representatives had shown
up at the synagogue saying a
police guard would be placed
there within a week.
In the June attack on the
synagogue, the police, who
were called while that at-
tack was in progress, failed
to arrive on the scene until
well after the attackers had
departed and then labeled
the incident not anti-
Semitic. ❑
