Last month the Knesset held an event marking 25 years since the floodgates of aliya from the former Soviet Union burst open, bringing more than a million-and-a-half people to Israel.

Speaking before an audience of their fellow former refuseniks in the Knesset, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein and Jewish Agency chairman Natan Sharansky called for remembrance of what they termed the “heroic story” of Soviet Jewry.
