Aged Jewish Couple Arrives in Israel from Soviet Union

An aged Jewish couple, Nahman and Rebecca Shochetman, arrived in Israel today from the Soviet Union. The Shochetman couple came from Kishinev, Bessarabia, via Vienna. They applied for visas four years ago, giving as their reason for wanting to leave, a desire to see their daughter in Haifa, from whom they had been separated for 19 years.
