Freeing Russian Jewry: The Refuseniks -- posted originally by Aish

Two important corrections: 1) Jacob Birnbaum, SSSJ's founder in 1964, was not a Yeshiva University student.  He was a child in Germany under the Nazis in the 1930s.    2) Shlomo Carlebach did not introduce "Am Yisrael Chai", the movement's anthem, in a Madison Square Garden rally, but rather at SSSJ march from the Soviet UN Mission to the United Nations in April 1965.  If you catch other factual errors, send them to Aish at an email box under the video, which is otherwise well worth circulating.
