A Message of Hope for Russian Jewry

Addressing Jews who had recently arrived from the Soviet Union at a Lag B’omer parade, the Rebbe explains that they demonstrate, for all to see, the steadfast commitment to Torah and Judaism that the Jewish people have, despite adversity.
Lubavitcher Rebbe, Soviet War on Judaism
A Message of Hope for Russian Jewry
Disc 153, Program 612

Event Date: 18 Iyar 5740 - May 04, 1980

Addressing Jews who had recently arrived from the Soviet Union at a Lag B’omer parade, the Rebbe explains that they demonstrate, for all to see, the steadfast commitment to Torah and Judaism that the Jewish people have, despite adversity.

Turning to those still behind the Iron Curtain, the Rebbe quotes Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, who taught that “In every place that the Jewish people are exiled, God is with them.”

Knowing that his message would be heard in the USSR, the Rebbe insists that the Soviet constitution itself secures freedom of religion for its citizens.
