    Background: About 2,000 Jewish women marched in a silent protest today (Thursday) to the Soviet Embassy in London. Meanwhile, in a North London synagogue, Jewish men continued a fast and called for freedom for Jews in the Soviet Union.

    The women's demonstration included well known actresses and public figures and had proceeded to the Soviet Embassy after a rally in a London hall.

    A deputation from the group delivered a petition to the gates of the Embassy and a member of the Embassy staff received it and promised the Ambassador would reply in due course.

    At the London synagogue the group of men involved in the fast listened to a religious service and joined in prayers. The demonstrations of solidarity for Jews in the Soviet Union follows the Leningrad hijacking trial in which Jews were sentenced to long prison sentences, and what Jewish leaders believe is a continuing persecution of Jews in Russia.
