At a moment when many young American Jews are questioning their connection to the state of Israel, Lawrence Epstein has given us a compelling reminder of the depths of that relationship for both Israel and American Jewry. A fascinating story about courage, commitment, and above all love. (Yossi Klein Halevi, Shalom Hartman Institute, Jerusalem; author of Like Dreamers)
Lawrence Epstein’s powerful combination of research and storytelling makes this book a compelling and fascinating read. He refers to his subject as “a story that deserves to be shouted,” and it is one that dispels the myth that Jews don’t know how to fight or fight back. This is an account of the extraordinary bravery, amazing resourcefulness, and unwavering commitment required for the creation of the State of Israel. The heroism and chutzpah of so many American Jews is worth shouting about! (Rabbi Stephen Karol, rabbi emeritus, Temple Isaiah, Stony Brook, New York)
