The petition to the Supreme Soviet was made available to correspondents Tuesday, on the eve of the start of Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights commemorating the Maccabean victory over Syrian 'tyranny more than years ago. The petition complained that although the Soviet Union sub- scribes to the UIS1 declaration, "most Jews have been refused exit visas despite the legality of cur demands, and with no ex- planation." Other Jewish informants re- ported that the Soviet authori- ties are changing their tactics toward the Jews who want to emigrate. They said an unknown num- ber of Jews have been granted permission to emigrate, but only when an Arab-Israeli set- tlement has been reached.

Meanwhile, the secret police or KGB has increased its sur- veillance of Jews who have ap- plied for visas. The KGB re- cently called in about 20 Mos- cow Jews and advised them to discontinue their efforts to leave Russia. Otherwise their "lives will be they were told.
