Aliyah Via the High Seas

Alexander and Luba Berman, a Soviet Jewish couple who received exit visas, are not taking the plane or train to Israel. They plan to sail there in an 18-foot yacht, due to leave Riga, on the Baltic Sea, on or about July 25. The Bermans plan a leisurely cruise around the Mediterranean by way of Gibraltar before docking in Haifa a few months from now.
