Limmud FSU and ‘Post’ launch exhibit on 25 years of Soviet aliya

A new traveling exhibit showcasing the last 25 years of post-Soviet Jewish life in the State of Israel is set to open at the annual Jerusalem Post Conference at the Marriott Marquis in New York City this June.

The project – organized jointly by the Post and Limmud FSU – traces the journeys of contemporary Russian Jews: from life in the Soviet Union to their release, their arrival in Israel and finally setting down new-old roots in the country.

The exhibit also tells the story of the worldwide campaigns, protests and demonstrations in the US, Israel and elsewhere in order to secure their release.
