Modern-day Exodus and the Soviet Jewry Movement

Award-winning author Dr. Emil Draitser will discuss this fascinating topic, lending depth with his own experience and expertise. He will then present his new book Farewell, Mama Odessa. Set in the summer of 1979 at the height of the movement to free Soviet Jewry and dedicated to its activists, Farewell, Mama Odessa is an autobiographical book that explores the reasons for Jewish emigration from the Soviet Union and the challenges they face in a new land. A professor emeritus of Russian at Hunter College in New York, besides his twelve books of artistic and scholarly prose, Dr. Email Draitser has published his work in the Los Angeles Times, Partisan Review, North American Review, Prism International, and many other American and Canadian periodicals.
