Join us as we welcome Rabbi Mendelevich and hear the inspiring story of his life in Communist Russia and his ultimate Aliyah to Israel.
The Epic Story of One Lone Jew against the Entire Soviet Regime: learn about his childhood growing up in Communist Russia, his involvement in the Jewish underground education movement, the attempted hijacking and the Leningrad trial, his 11 years in the Gulag, his eventual liberation from prison and ultimate Aliya to Israel.
Rabbi Mendelevich is also the Author of Unbroken Spirit: A Heroic Story Of Faith, Courage and Survival
