Share this event:

Born in Riga, Latvia, in 1947, Yosef Mendelevich was a leader of the Russian Jewish revival in the 1960's. Arrested in 1970 for attempting to hijack a Russian airplane to escape, he served eleven years in the Soviet gulag for his Jewish activism, which continued in prison. Upon his release in 1981, he immigrated to Israel.  "Yosef Mendelevich is a true hero of one of the most successful human rights struggles in history: the rescue of Soviet refuseniks  from an antisemitic captivity This remarkable memoir must be read by all who love freedom and cherish the right to practice their religion." (Alan Dershowitz)

December marks the 25th anniversary of the culminating moment of the Soviet Jewry Movement: the March on Washington on the eve of the first Gorbachev/Reagan summit. The Annual Jewish Book & Arts Fair salutes this momentous time and the epic struggle for freedom.
