Wednesday, December 9, 2015, 7:00 pm

$10 general, $7 students/seniors/AJHS members

Join AJHS and our friends at the highly praised Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center in Moscow, for a special screening of the documentary film Alyad (Nika Vashakidze, 2015, 60 mins.)

Get to know the personal, previously untold, stories of the Russian Jewish Refusenik activists, as they share their everyday lives and spiritual journeys, across time and various continents, in their own voice. Beautifully tailoring intimate, compelling portraits of former Refuseniks in the aftermath of the migration waves from the former USSR to the US and Israel, Alyad shifts the focus from the political-ideological to the mundane and private struggles and questions of the people who made the movement, offering a fresh perspective about the Refusnik movement as a whole.
