The Soviet Jewry project of Temple Bnai Jehudah received a phone call Sunday from Evgeny Yakir, one of the noted Soviet refusniks in Moscow. Yakir reported that an exit visa had been granted to a well-known refusnik, Felix Kamov-Kandel, a screen writer who first applied for an exit visa in September, 1973. He is expected to leave the Soviet Union in a week or two. After Kamov-Kandel applied for a visa his name was removed from film titles.
