Traveling Exhibitions: Voices of the Vigil

Voices of the Vigil at Washington Hebrew Congregation, 2013

Voices of the Vigil at Martin Luther King Jr Memorial Library, 2014

This, our newest exhibition, tells the story of our community's role in the struggle for freedom for Soviet Jewry.

In addition to holding a 20-year daily vigil across the street from the Soviet Embassy, Washington Jews organized rallies and marches, waged letter-writing campaigns to pressure politicians, sent packages and holiday greetings to refuseniks, and visited Jews in the Soviet Union.

Read the rave reviews!
