The Movement to Free Soviet Jewry: Mining Lessons in Identity, Diversity, and Community Organizing

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join me for a community conversation with American and Soviet-born Jews about the social justice movement which shaped a generation of America Jews post-WWII gave over 2.5 million Soviet-born Jews like myself a chance to be full citizens in a country of their choice. How did this movement gain the traction that it did in the United States? What happened to the Jews who came here? What lessons can we learn to apply to various Jewish challenges today?
