Projects: A Handbook for Community Action on Soviet Jewry

Early in my involvement, I became acutely aware of the need for a resource book on Soviet Jewry. So, in 1965, I cobbled together my first Handbook for Community Action on Soviet Jewry. The Handbook was republished in two later editions 1966 and 1970 each with more and updated content and a larger press run than the one before. Designed with a broad range of users in mind, it contained suggestions for action programs; material for talks and sermons; dramatic readings, songs and plays; teacher guides and teaching units for use in school; and reports, articles, and other factual material on Soviet Jewry.

Organizations, libraries and individuals throughout North America purchased the handbook. The Cleveland Federation provided a special grant that enabled us to mail a free copy of the third edition to all Hillel Foundations on campuses throughout the United States and Canada.
