Lessons Learned: The Soviet Jewry Movement

By Philip Spiegel

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, December 2012

The Soviet Jewry movement learned many lessons from the civil rights movement. The leaders of both movements urged nonviolence as a method of political struggle. Both movements were successful in attracting media attention through their non-violent confrontations. The Soviet Jewry movement did not remain parochial but attracted support from other groups, including Christian groups.
