MOSCOW, 1993 (REUTER)
For Jews in the former Soviet Union,
the exit signs are clearly marked.
The signs are all too familiar. Brown-shirted
fascists march. Synagogues mysteriously go
up in flames. Right-wing extremist Vladimir
Zhirinovsky rants against Jews and "Zionist
plots." And his party wins more votes than
any other in Russia.
Once again, opportunists blame terrible
conditions on their traditional scapegoat—
And for Jews, anti-Semitism just adds to
the misery of life in the former Soviet Union:
Severe economic hardship. Political instability.
The depressing lack of opportunity for an
education, for a better life.
But there is hope. Operation Exodus.
So far, the UJA-Federation Operation
Exodus Campaign has helped rescue 500,000
Jews from the former Soviet Union-69,132
in 1993 alone. And brought them home
Yet, 1.4 million Jews remain. With your
support, they can leave the hatred and
despair behind. Before it's too late.
Please give generously to Operation
Exodus II and the Allied Jewish Campaign.
Detroit area contributors will see their names
inscribed in the Operation Exodus Scroll of
Honor documenting the Jewish community's
part in this epic homecoming.
This time we can clearly see what's
happening over there. And all the signs
point in the same direction. Out.
