Voices of the Vigil

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.
