Choosing to Remain Jewish

By Svetlana Lantsman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2005

The author describes the resilience of Jewishness in the virulently antisemitic Soviet Union. As a subsequent immigrant from the Soviet Union to the United States with her family as a young child, she describes the conscious act of choosing a Jewish identity among the multiple layers of being Russian, Jewish and American.
