Getting The Lo-Down On SovJews In Your Mailbox

This year’s Big Jewcy Lea Zeltserman continues to rock: growing her domain by way of a shnazzy new newsletter rounding up intriguing Soviet Jewish-related posts on her fantastic website, and possibly the only of its kind, that loyally connects readers with a largely unrelated story, the collective mass of individual experiences of North American Soviet Jewish immigrants. A handful of decades after a couple of waves of Jewish refugees fled for greener pastures, people inside and outside of the community are still catching up to figure out what the hell happened on a large scale, but also on individual levels through such whirlwind transitions to new political and social systems. By way of a brilliantly accessible format, Zeltserman is in turn allowing a communal experience to be written.
