Community leader and philanthropist Shoshana Cardin was honored at a photography exhibit commemorating her profound role in the struggle for Soviet Jewry, at Chizuk Amuno in Pikesville, Maryland, on Wednesday.
Among her many achievements, Cardin is a former chairwoman of the National Conference on Soviet Jewry and was the only woman elected to head the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.
The ‘Let My People Go’ exhibit, marking 25 years since the opening of the gates of the Soviet Union to free Jewish emigration, was prepared by Limmud FSU together with The Jerusalem Post. Senator Ben Cardin, a relative, noted that ‘Soviet Jewry taught us that people can change policy."
