November 15, 1979
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A resolution was approved in the House of Representatives yesterday urging the Soviet Union to allow Tad Nudel to emigrate to Israel to join her husband and sister there. The resolution, which was recently introduced by Rep. Edward Stack (D. Fla.), passed unanimously on a voice vote.

A similar resolution was also introduced in the Senate yesterday by Senators Harrison A. Williams Jr. (D. NJ) and Charles Percy (R. III.), who is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

The National Council on Soviet Jewry helped draft the resolution in behalf of the Russian Jewish woman who is at present in poor health in a Siberian labor camp. Mrs. Nudel was arrested in 1978 for hanging a banner from her Moscow apartment asking for an exit visa. She was sentenced to four years exile in Siberia.
