The Soviet Jewry Movement and American Jewish Advocacy 25 Years Later

December 16, 2012 10:00 AM-2:00 PM

Join us on December 16th at the National Museum of American Jewish History as we celebrate and explore the modern exodus of over 1.5 million Russian-speaking Jews and the Soviet Jewry movement that made it possible. The program will feature:

Marina & Lev Furman and other former movement leaders and refuseniks – on their experiences taking on the Soviet regime from both sides of the ocean.

Gal Beckerman – author of the authoritative chronicle of the Soviet Jewry movement When They Come For Us, We’ll Be Gone, on the impact and movement for American Jewish advocacy and US foreign policy.

Sohrab Ahmari – Journalist for the Wall Street Journal, New Republic, Commentary and more, on the lessons of the Soviet Jewry movement for activists today.

Plus special musical performance by Natasha Hirschorn, special guest appearances and more!
