The Papers of Fred Greene represent one collection housed within the Archive of the American Soviet Jewry Movement (AASJM). These papers reflect the effort, beginning in the 1960s through the late 1980s, of thousands of American Jews of all denominations and political orientations to stop the persecution and discrimination of Jews in the Soviet Union. The American Soviet Jewry Movement (ASJM) is considered to be the most influential Movement of the American Jewish community in the 20th century. The beginnings of the organized American Soviet Jewry Movement became a model for efforts to aid Soviet Jews in other countries, among them Great Britain, Canada, and France. The movement can be traced to the early 1960s, when the first organizations were created to address the specific problem of the persecution and isolation of Soviet Jews by the government of the Soviet Union.
Fred Greene is a Senior Rabbi at Temple Beth Tikvah, Roswell, GA. He has served several congregations and organizations, including the New Israel Fund and the Union for Reform Judaism, focusing on adult education, youth, outreach, and leadership development. During the late 1980s and early 1990s Rabbi Greene was involved in the Soviet Jewry movement in the Long Island, NY area.
