Dr. Anatol Galperin. a Soviet Jewish activist who recently received an exit visa after years of struggle, arrived here Monday night for a reunion with his wife who has been living in Beersheba. Dr. Galperin, an expert in applied mathematics, was granted a doctoral degree by the Haifa Technion on the basis of the work he completed in the Soviet Union.
