Liza Koiman and Nina Pinskaya were students at a Ukrainian school and hadn't seen one another since 1953--until the two recently bumped into each other in English lessons at Temple Judea in Tarzana. Pinskaya, 63, and Koiman, 66, are students in the Temple Judea English Program, but in different classes. At the end of April, when one of their teachers was absent and the two classes combined for the day, Koiman recognized Pinskaya.

Tucked away in a down-at-the-heels 1926 vaudeville/movie house in a less-than-spiffy part of Melrose Avenue, about 20 women were gathered recently around tables painting Easter eggs. Not your average pink, blue and yellow with transfer designs, these eggs have ancient, intricate designs in bold colors--works of art carefully placed on the brittle surface of an eggshell. They're special for their artistic quality, and they're special for their historical significance.

Soviet immigrant Alexander Okner, jailed by the Immigration and Naturalization Service for 16 months because the agency believed he posed a threat to society, has been released on bond in Los Angeles. Okner, who served eight years in California state prison for the kidnaping and repeated rape of a Santa Monica woman, had been imprisoned at the federal detention center at Terminal Island since October, 1992. Although he has been ordered deported from the United States, no country will take him.
