"Adoption" of Soviet Families by Synagogues: Strengthening the Jewish Community Through Soviet Resettlement

By David H. Colten

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1980

In 1975, the North Shore (Massachusetts) Jewish community accepted its first Soviet family. The challenge of meeting the resettlement needs of the new immigrants has had a profound effect on the agencies and synagogues, and other institutions, on the North Shore. In this medium sized community, the need to organize and implement a meaningful program of Soviet resettlement created a cooperative effort among federation, agencies and synagogues that had not existed before.
