New York/JTA — A group of Russian-
speaking Jews in the United States are
criticizing a planned memorial at Babi
Yar in Ukraine.
The center proposed at the site where
more than 30,000 Jews were killed in
September 1941 "will do damage to
Jewish interests" and "diminish the
memory of the Jewish community," said
the group, known as the Save Babi Yar
The objections come after
Ukrainian Jewish leader Josef Zissels
led protests against the memorial in
The American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee, which is
funding the memorial, said, "The
Jewish community of Ukraine is the
only legitimate forum for making a
decision on the issue of a Jewish
memorial near Babi Yar.
"The Ukrainian Jewish community is
comprised of dozens of sovereign and
independent Jewish organizations, head-
ed by indigenous Jewish leaders. The
overwhelming majority of those organi-
zations support a Jewish memorial near

Jew Arrested For
Terror Missile Trade
Washington/TJA — An American Jew
was arrested in a missile sting linked to
terrorist arms dealings.
Yehuda Abraham is one of three men
arrested after one tried to sell a surface-
to-air missile to FBI informants posing
as terrorists who wanted to shoot down
a commercial plane. Abraham, an
Afghan Jew in his 70s who lives in
Queens, N.Y., helps to run a family jew-
elry business in Manhattan called
Ambuy, associates said.
He is expected to face charges that he
illegally transmitted money to finance
the missile scheme. Ambuy has a store
in Jedda, Saudi Arabia, and sells jewelry
to members of royal families, according
to the company Web site. An associate
described Abraham as an occasional syn-
agogue-goer who gives to charity. Years
ago, he was involved in bringing Jews
from Afghanistan to the United States.
Jerusalem/JTA — The International
Fellowship of Christians and Jews will
donate $650,000 toward the purchase of
school bags for Israeli first-graders.
The donation to needy and immi-
grant families comes in response to a
request from Israeli Prime Minister Ariel
Sharon, the group said in a press release.
"Many families in Israel today cannot
afford schoolbags or other necessities for
their children," said the group's presi-
dent, Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein. "Our
Christian friends in America, whose sup-
port allows us to do so much for Israel,
will put a smile on the face of more than
25,000 needy children beginning their
first school year."
The Ministry of Education will dis-
tribute the school bags through the wel-
fare departments of 220 cities across
Israel before school starts on Sept. 1.
