Moshe Brodetzky began working for the Soviet Jewry movement in the early 1960s while living in New York City. Just after the Six-Day War in 1967, he moved to Washington, D.C. and found the community had not yet organized on behalf of the plight of Soviet Jews. He founded the Washington Committee for Soviet Jewry in 1968. He chaired WSCJ until 1973.
