Regarding Jonathan Mark’s article, “A Hero Of Biblical Proportions,” April 18: Well done. A fitting tribute to Yaakov Birnbaum, who inspired me and many other 1964 Yeshiva College seniors to protest regularly on behalf of Soviet Jewry.
Mark was on point to credit Glenn Richter’s immense contribution to the movement. Glenn was devoted to the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry (SSSJ) 24/7.
One cannot remember SSSJ without remembering the courage of both Yaakov Birnbaum and Glenn Richter.
