Soviet Jewry Exhibit at Washington Hebrew Congregation

By Schroeder Stribling, N Street Village Executive Director

It was an honor to be present for the opening of an exhibit at Washington Hebrew Congregation on Sunday night December 8th, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the vigil and movement to liberate Soviet Jewry.  N Street Village is especially honored by the deep ties that we share to the leaders in this extraordinary history – including Norman and Joanne Goldstein, Marcia and (the late) Rabbi Joe Weinberg, Joan and Oscar Dodek, and Pastor John and Erna Steinbruck, among others.

The Soviet Jewry exhibit – which will be up until April 6, 2014 – is a great testimony to our human potential.  This history is a vibrant example of the fact that we can indeed unite and work in communion and in community for justice, peace and freedom.  Especially this past week as we honor the legacy of Nelson Mandela, may we be bound together in hope and determination to continue our efforts and see the promise ahead for the social justice we have yet to achieve.
