Belarus SIG #Belarus Re: The word "Israelites" and "Old Believers" #belarus


Raanan Isseroff's Dec.9, 03 remarks regarding my response about the word
"Israelites" were well done. It is true, as he said, that the Soviet Regime's
Special Section for Jews did in fact develop into a means of eradicating Jewish
religious life, before the Section itself was shut down.

I had thought of mentioning this special Section, but was afraid my response
would get too wordy as some of my responses have been. So I thank Raanan for his comments.
