NEW YORK (.ITA) Documen¬ tary evidence on intensification by the Soviet Union of ita efforta to auppreaa the Jewiah religion in Ruaaia were reported thia Week at the United Natlona. Data on wideapread liquidation ot aynagoguea and a ban againat the baking of matzoh' In major (lities ot the Ukraine, a aection with a large Jewlah population, highlighted the detailed rep'ort. THE BAN waa impoaed laat Paaaover in Kharkov, Odessa, Kiev and in the central Russian cities of Kuibyahev and Roatov. Soviet officiala made difficulties for JeWs who wanted to bake matzoth in Moscow and Lenin¬ grad but finally permitted the baking to take plaoe. The report gave the following detalla on cloalng of aynagoguea: In Novoaelltaa, In the Ukraine, two buildings that had been used as aynagoguea were confiacated and turned into club housea. In Olevak, small Jewlah re¬ llgloua groupa, which had been permitted alnce the aynagogue waa converted into a achool In 1949, have all been disbanded in recent montha in thla Ukrainian town. In 'Vlnnltaa, the synagogue haa been confiscated and Jews are now praying In an abandoned building. In Korosten a year ago the Jewlah community, having saved a conalderable aum for a ayna¬ gogue, waa unable to obtain an official permit but built It any¬ way. The building was confis¬ cated and an appeal to Moscow was rejected. In Yevpatoriya, In the Crimea, the authorities confiacated 25,000 rublea raiaed by the Jewlah com¬ munity to rent a building for a aynagogue. In Baranovichi, in Byeloruaala, the great synagogue haa been taken over tor une by the State Security Committee. Since then the authoritiea have not permitted the rabbi to function and have forbidden ritual cattle alaughter or any other exerciae of the Jew¬ ish religion. In Tula, l.'iO milea aouth of Moacow, uae of the aynagogue, which waa in a communal aptrt- ment, was forbidden because the non-Jewiah reaident Informed au¬ thorities that he waa diaturbcd by the prayers. The synagogue in Orenburg, 750 miles .southeast of Moacow, alao has been cloaed recently. In Rybnltaa, in Bessarabia, there ia widespread fear the synagogue will close shortly. In Rakhov, in Transcarpathia, the two aynagoguea that remained open have been confiscated and turned Into atorea. In Irkutsk, eastern Siberia, the flrat floor of a aynagogue waa confiacated recently to provide houaing for medical atudents, TKE REPORT also revealed that in Kharkov, the 20 small Jewiah groupa were dispersed last September during the aecond day of the Jewish New Year celebra- tiona. All the Torahs were confia¬ cated and a policeman told one of the .lews. "You are eating Russian bread but praying for Israel." Thia was in line with an article denouncing "the reactionary es¬ sence of the Judean religion," which appeared in the Lvov Pra- vada. The article recalled that when Jewa eat matzoth at Pass¬ over, they express the hope that they will eat it the following year "In Jerusalem, on larael aoU," and added: "However, don't the rellgloua Jews know that Israel ia at preaent an obedient tool in the hands of American, British and French Imperlallata?"
