The dinner was followed by watching a film called Refuseniks, which is about the Jews of the former Soviet Union who refueed to be silenced by the Soviet Regime's Antisemitic policies and agitated to be allowed to emigrate to Israel, as well as the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry which fought successfully to make the cause of Refuseniks a central issue within the American Jewish community.
