The story of Soviet Jewry is one the great tales of exodus and redemption in our time. Israeli politician, author, and humanrights activist Natan Sharansky and award-winning American presidential historian Gil Troy join JRB editor Abe Socher to discuss their new book, Never Alone: Prison, Politics, and My People. We discussed a Seder in Russia, the Kotel controversy, and more from Sharansky’s years as a refusenik, his political battles, and his urgent critique of contemporary American Jewish life.
