Teenagers Rally for Soviet Jewry

Some 150 Jewish youths — teenagers who recently came of bar and bat mitzvah age — demonstrated today in support of Soviet Jewry, first outside the National Press Building and then at the Soviet Embassy where they joined in the regularly scheduled daily Soviet Jewry vigil there.

The teenagers, who sang Hebrew songs and chanted anti-Soviet slogans and waved placards which demanded freedom for Soviet Jews, all came from the Jewish Community Centers of Greater Washington and of Northern Virginia.
