A dissident, broadly defined, is a person who actively challenges an established doctrine, policy, or institution. In a religious context, the word has been used since 18th century, and in the political sense since 1940, coinciding with the rise of totalitarian systems, especially the Soviet Union.
In memory of Alexander Solomonovich Pinsker (1937 -2017) who was forced to leave Soviet Union for political reasons in 1974.
