Faces of Soviet Jewry–A Pictorial Essay

by Shapiro, J. and Shapiro, D.H.

Faces of Soviet Jewry. Temple Beth El newsletter. l990.

Below are photos taken from our Mission to the Soviet Union sponsored by our Temple, Beth El, to meet with “Jewish Refuseniks” during 1989, a time of “glasnost” openness.

In 1991, two years after our visit, the USSR was disbanded into its constituent republics. We joke that maybe we had some small part in that! 🙂
