Dr. Benjamin Fein, a Soviet Jewish physicist and one of the leaders of the Jewish dissident movement in the USSR, arrived here Monday after a three-year campaign to emigrate to Israel. Fein, who arrived here together with a group of 150 immigrants from the Soviet Union, was one of the organizers of the Jewish cultural seminars in Moscow last year which the authorities tried to close down. Several days ago, Mark Azbel, a leading Soviet physicist, arrived in Israel.
