For the past two years JDC has been providing- the small Jewish community of Egypt with Passover matzoh and supplies directly, rather than through the International Red Cross as had been the case for the past 31 years. nrntIMur, rlu;lua dlwlit!

HERITAGE pho by lnker le Update on Orldo's Rus$| Filles First 23 Soviet Jews Well Integrated Vote Slated to Settle 11 More Here by Tinker Sale HERITAGE Staff Once again the attention of community leaders will focus on the 23 Russian Jews resettled in Orlando since last September, this time in light of HIAS' request that Orlando take an additional 11 people this year. The additional immi- YAKOV PYATETSKY is a smiled plastics molder, working at Florida Desk Co. grants represent some of the 7,000 refugees currently wait- ing in Rome transit camps for placement in the U.S. The issue is expected to come up for vote at the Jewish Federa- tion board meeting scheduled for next Wed., Mar. 26, 7 p.m. at the JCC. Last year, Orlando was one of only two communities in the U.S. to adopt a resolution, later presented at national Council of Jewish Federations annual meeting, that would withhold aid, in effect, to Russian im- migrants who chose the U.S. rather than Israel. "Orlando is one of the very few American communities in which all the immigrants have succeeded in becoming financially independent of the Jewish community within the three-month target time," according to director of the Jewish Family Service, AI Gamson, who coordinated the resettlement efforts of the volunteer Soviet Resettlement Task Force. Gamson attrib- uted that record to two major factors. "Those who came here had art overwhelming determination to begin work immediately," he said, "regardless of the language barrier or medical problems." The second factor, Gamson said, was the "complete dedi- cation" of a small group of Task Force volunteers who have "lived and breathed resettlement" aided by the concerned support of much of the community-at-large. Task Force chairman, Abby Sale, commented that the knowledge gained by the Task Force will make it easier to help future immigrants. "It's been an enlightening experi- ence," he said, "and I believe we have a moral obligation to help the people HIAS wants us to take." Bringing another group of Soviets here would neces- sitate raising about another $7,000 in cash and $5,000 in kind (jobs, furniture), with a grant of $11,000 to come from national sources. Joe Greenspun, chairman of the fund-raising activities for Task Force, said, "Of course we should bring in more Soviets. You can't tell Jews 'go away, bother somebody else." Greenspun's committee raised some $9,000 for the first Russian group. Additional funds, such as CETA programs, have aided in on- the-job training for several of the immigrants. Calling the Russians' adaptation to the "totally foreign" American culture "little short of miraculous," Gamson provided an outline of their current status. Of the five children, Stanislav (5) is in JCC day school; Yury (2) is in a state- subsidized day care program; Marina (2) is at home; Viktoria (13) is a student at Winter Park High; and Michael (9) is at the Hebrew Day School. Seven- teen-year-old Vlad works part time at Florida Desk Co. while attending the l ith gre at Edgewater High Schoo-1. Among the adults, Viktor and Lena Goykhman, who arrived last August, are about to move to a larger residence. Viktor is an electrical engineer, working for St. John and Son Electricians. Lena teaches music and works part-time for the Kip Watson School of Per- forming Arts. Lena's parents, Semyon and Golda Dansker, who also arrived in August, live with them. Semyon is a lathe operator in Orlando. Lebya and Sonya Tarna- rider live in Kinneret II and receive supplemental Social Insurance (Lebya is disabled from a war injury.) Sonya works at Sunland. Of those who arrived here in September, Fima Tarnarider is working as an apprentice electrician, his wife, Nina, has been working as a librarian under a CETA program and is seeking new employment.
