Growing up Jewish in the Soviet Union, writer Margarita Gokun Silver knew nothing about Judaism. For her, and the majority of Soviet Jews, Jewishness was a line in their passports, an ethnicity recorded in official documents and a fact that elicited both institutionalized discrimination and antisemitic bigotry.

In this talk, museum director of interpretation Amy Consalvi will discuss with Margarita growing up Jewish yet being ignorant of Judaism and learning about the religion of her ancestors after emigrating to the United States.

This program is hosted by the Museum of Russian Icons and supported by a grant from the Bridge Street Fund, a special initiative of Mass Humanities.
