‘Against all Odds’ with Special Guest Rabbi Yosef Mendelovich

Monday, Jan 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$18.

Fascinating story of How one Jew stood up to the Soviets and KGB. A heroic story of Faith, Courage and Survival. In 1970, at age 22, already a veteran of the Jewish underground, Yosef Mendelevich made news around the world with a attempt to escape the Soviet Union with a group of Jews on a small tourist aircraft.Before the group could board the plane, the KGB arrested them all, resulting in the infamous Leningrad Trial which riveted international attention. After his death sentence was moderated he still remained in prison for 11 years with dissident Nathan Sharansky, resisting all attempts to squash his body and soul.
