Zev Yaroslavsky — A Debt of Gratitude Recognized on Israel’s 70th Anniversary
On the occasion of Israel’s 70th anniversary, Soviet Jewry hero Zev Yaroslavsky will be honored by Westwood Kehilla at its June 10 banquet at Sephardic Temple in Westwood. Well known as a City Councilman and County Supervisor, Yaroslavsky gained public notice in the late 1960s when, as a UCLA student, he led protests to pressure the USSR to permit the emigration of Jews. As a result of the Free Soviet Jewry movement, almost 300,000 Jews were able to emigrate to freedom, the majority to Israel.
