Two of the leading Jewish activists in, Moscow, both physicists, were among the group of 90 Soviet Jewish immigrants who arrived from Vienna last night on a plane with Premier Golda Meir. The two were Dr. Vladimir Roginsky, who had been arrested three times in the Soviet Union for his activism, and Boris Einbinder, who had been arrested once. Dr. Roginsky said that after the El Al plane was airborne “Golda came in from the first class compartment and greeted us in Yiddish. We told her we speak Hebrew and immediately she changed to Hebrew.”

Mrs. Nina Katzir, wife of Israeli President Ephraim Katzir, greeted the newcomers with flowers and told the two physicists that she would see to it that they continue their scientific work. Einbinder, 33, arrived with his wife and 2-year-old son, and Roginsky, 34, came with his wife.
