Famed Refusenik Yosef Mendelevich

Famed Refusenik, Rabbi Yosef Mendelevich, will be speaking on Sunday night, March 30, 2014 at Congregation Shomrei Emunah, 6221 Greenspring Avenue. Rabbi Mendelevich will share the incredible story of his arrest by the KGB for attempting to hijack a plane to the West; his imprisonment in the Gulag for 11 years; his resistance to all attempts by his Soviet captors to squash his body and soul; and his emergence from prison with a deepened faith, and a love for Israel. His talk will leave you moved and inspired. Rabbi Mendelevich will also be signing copies of his autobiography, “Unbroken Spirit: A Heroic Story of Faith, Courage and Survival.”
