Download PDF for this date

An unofficial Moscow Hebrew teacher and two second-generation refuseniks have been granted exit visas to Israel, according to the Long Island Committee for Soviet Jewry and the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry.

They are: Mikhail Kholmyansky, a physicist and unofficial Hebrew educator who had been refused for nine years and is the brother of former Prisoner of Conscience Alexander Kholmyansky; 23-year-old Felix Abramovich, an 18-year refusenik and son of Moscow Jewish activist Pavel Abramovich; and Dorina Paritsky of Kharkov, 22, whose father Alexander Paritsky is a former POC. Although none of their family members have received visas, the three plan to immigrate to Israel.
