April 4 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pmR270
Back in 1987, at the age of 18, refusenik Marina Furman was fighting for the right of Jews to emigrate from the Soviet Union. Surviving a KGB murder attempt, a harrowing 10-year journey to freedom her courage and resilience ultimately led to permission being granted for her and thousands of other Russian Jews to leave the Soviet Union for Israel where she became a resettlement official in Raanana. Today Marina Furman is the National Executive Director for Special Campaigns for the JNF in America. A true heroine she is a great source of inspiration, her story portraying why anti-Semitism will never destroy us.
Marina Furman will share her powerful story in Johannesburg as a guest of the Jewish Women’s Benevolent Society. All proceeds from this event will be used to enhance the lives of lonely, indigent, isolated and elderly members of our community who depend on the JWBS for so much so many take for granted. Please join us for an uplifting and motivating evening while participating in making a difference to so many who cannot help themselves.
