Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat is to inaugurate a street named after MK Dr. Yuri Shtern on Sunday afternoon to commemorate the leaders of immigrants from the Soviet Union who fought for the freedom of religion and aliya of Soviet Jews to Israel.

The ceremony will be held in Pisgat Zeev, and is to be attended by Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman.

Dr. Yuri Shtern was a Russian-Israeli politician and journalist. He was a member of the Knesset from 1996 until his death, first as a member of Yisrael BaAliyah and later on behalf of Yisrael Beiteinu. A foundation in his memory promotes various domestic environmental and immigrant absorption projects.
