Let My People Go... Where?

By Leonard Fein

Moment Magazine, January 1977

The side-by-side challenges of Zionism and Humanitarianism are at the forefront in this piece, as Leonard Fein discusses the challenges of the emigration of Soviet Jews. As emigration from the Soviet Union has long proven difficult, one of the few ways for Jews wishing to escape degradation in Russia is to claim Israeli Visas, whether or not they intended Israel as their final destination. Fein looks at whether Jewish Committees and American Financial supporters have the right to compel Soviet Jews to continue on to Israel as opposed to "dropping out" of their Israeli Visas and moving to America.
