Offering Thanks: Reflections On 25 Years Of A Gift Of Life

12/23/2011
Special To The Jewish Week

It’s 25 years today that I went through quadruple bypass-open heart surgery.  It all started three months earlier, in September.  The Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry was protesting in front of Lincoln Center against the appearance of the Russian Moiseyev Dance Company.  Our position was that there should be no cultural exchange with the former Soviet Union until all Soviet Jews were free.
