Admin History/Bio
Activities undertaken by the Committee for Soviet Jewry in Ontario and its affiliated partner organizations included political lobbying, telephone and letter-writing campaigns, product boycotting, symposiums, public rallies, petitions, marches and demonstrations. Among the highest profile activities were the annual Simcha Torah rallies in October and the annual commemorations of the execution of twenty-four Soviet Jewish writers and intellectuals, which had occurred on August 12, 1952 at Moscow's Liubianka prison. As well as organizing public protest activities, the Committee for Soviet Jewry established, in the 1980s, the Ida Nudel Humanitarian Award which emphasized the humanitarian work of a number of prominent Canadian women. Other non-protest activities included bar/ bat mitzvah twinning, family and prisoner sponsorships, and holiday greetings, all programmes that tied the daily lives of Soviet Jews to their Canadian counterparts.
Scope and Content

Admin History/Bio
Individual case files and refusnik listings were assembled by numerous Soviet Jewry advocacy groups and distributed internationally. Such records were then used by groups like the Committee for Soviet Jewry in their promotional material such as leaflets and news briefs to inform the Jewish community, interest groups and members of the general public about updates to the status of individual refusnik cases and the plight of Soviet Jews within the Soviet Union.
Scope and Content
Sub-series consists of files documenting individual refusniks, some very well known, as well as files and publications containing lists and/or groups of Soviet Jews and documents related to group activities. Sub-series is organized into three sub-sub-series: individual case files, groups, and publications.

Admin History/Bio
Dr. Yevgeny Levich was born in Moscow in 1948, the son of the prominent physicist Dr. Benjamin Levich. Yevgeny received his Physics Ph.D.. in 1970, but was dismissed from his position after applying to emigrate to Israel in 1972. Subsequently ordered to report for military service, Yevgeny refused and was arrested in 1973. He was sentenced to heavy labour in an Arctic camp, despite a record of poor health. Following international protests, Yevgeny was released from prison in 1974 and granted permission to emigrate with his brother Alexander to Israel, where he was employed as a senior scientist in the Department of Nuclear Physics at the Weizman Institute of Science in Rehovoth, Israel.
