What Else She Said

When I came to this country I had this feeling of guilt -- why had we received permission and not others who were even waiting longer? It was a drive for me, a real drive not to stop... And in about a year and a half when I already could speak and express myself [in English], I found this organization, Action for Post-Soviet Jewry. And through them as a board member I dedicated ten years of my life to the cause of families that were left behind. Through the Jewish Family Service of the North Shore I helped with the resettlement of others who came to the North Shore. We created an organization that we called HELP. I was the president of this organization. We were group of people from Russia who slowly started the process for newcomers' settlement.
