Jewish Emigration from Russia and the Soviet Union

Gitelman, Zvi

This presentation addresses Soviet policy on emigration as it relates to Russian Jews. The Jewish people are described as an "ever-migrating" people, and the largest migration of Jews in recent history is that of Russian Jews from Imperialist Russia and Soviet Russia to Palestine and what later became the state of Israel. The reasons for this migration are outlined, including suppression of Jewish religion, culture, language, and Zionism.
