And None shall Make them Afraid
Eight Stories of the Modern State of Israel
Americanism, with freedom and democracy at its core, and Zionism, the movement to create a free and democratic Jewish state, were the two most successful “isms” of the twentieth century. Their adversaries—communism, fascism, and national socialism (Nazis) —murdered millions. This is the story of how Zionism, supported by Americanism, created a modern miracle– told through the little-known stories of eight individuals who collectively changed history. Taken together, they recount both a people’s return to its place among the nations and the impact on history that a single individual can make.”
Racing Against History
The 1940 Campaign for a Jewish Army to Fight Hitler
Racing Against History is the untold story of three powerful personalities who sought to turn the tide of history. In 1940, David Ben-Gurion, Vladimir Jabotinsky, and Chaim Weizmann—the leaders of the left, right, and center of Zionism—undertook separate missions to America to seek support for a Jewish army to fight Hitler. This book presents Zionism’s historic figures and the American Jewish community at the beginning of the most consequential decade of modern Jewish history.
