Involvement in the Soviet Jewry Movement by Louis Rosenblum
Projects: The Spotlight Newsletter

Projects: The Spotlight Newsletter

The CCSA newsletter was appropriately called Spotlight. The first issue came off the press in 1965 and was published sporadically through 1969. (It is important to note that, -in that period, no other widely disseminated newsletter on Soviet Jewry was published in America.) Herb Caron, who is a fine writer, was the editor. He also drew the cartoons and line art that embellished each issue a wonderful talent. I contributed an editorial or two, and was responsible for a page on action programs and one on material available from the CCSA. By 1969, Spotlight had a distribution of more than 18,000 copies.
