How 2,000,000 Jews Regained Their Identity
May 24, 2017 is the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, Yom Yerushalayim, following the Six-Day War. For Jews in the former Soviet Union, the Six-Day War had enormous significance. It proved that Israel was a viable nation and sparked their interest in learning about Judaism, being Jewish and emigrating to Israel. During this talk, Beth Am congregant Phil Spiegel discussed the situation prevailing for Soviet Jews in 1967 and how a small number of them launched a movement that gained worldwide support and ultimately brought about fulfillment of the desires to "Let My People Go" and "Let My People Know."
