Opening Program: June 26, 2018, 5:30 pm

A traveling exhibit from the National Museum of American Jewish History, Power of Protest: The Movement to Free Soviet Jews, will document one of the most successful human rights campaigns of the late 20th century. The panel exhibition showcases Americans’ efforts in the late 1960s through 1990 to free refuseniks – Jews who lived in the Soviet Union and were denied the rights to live freely, practice Judaism, or leave the country due to their religion. Through text, imagery and media, the exhibit will blend compelling personal stories of American Jewish activists and the Soviet Jews who immigrated to America and impacted our society in countless ways.
