Event Details

Description

Join Jewish National Fund-USA IsraelCast host Steven Shalowitz and author Max Levin for a live Q&A session about his book, Under the Stretcher. Under the Stretcher takes you into “Operation Protective Edge," the 2014 conflict between Israel and Gaza, shared through the eyes of Max Levin, an American-born Israeli soldier who immigrated in 2012 to join the Israeli army. This book takes you step-by-step on his journey as he immigrates to Israel, learns Hebrew, goes through many grueling try-outs and finally makes it into one of Israel's special forces units - Palchan Tzanhanim. Available for purchase on Amazon. Purchasing the book prior to the event is not required but recommended. Register at jnf.org/readingseries.

About JNF-USA’s Reading Series: Jewish National Fund-USA’s Reading Series takes place monthly via Zoom and brings together readers and Jewish authors for a lively and engrossing virtual discussion, moderated by JNF-USA IsraelCast host Steven Shalowitz. Every month, a new book about Judaism and/or Israel becomes the subject of a conversation that creates and solidifies friendships while giving people a chance to flex their intellectual muscles from the comfort of their own home.
