    Yosef Mendelevich will be speaking live from Israel where he lives and will fascinate with his heroic life story. We hope you can join.

    In 1970, at age 22, already a veteran of the Jewish underground, Yosef made news around the world with a daring 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's Trial which riveted international attention. The defendants exhibited great bravery in court, and the international uproar moderated the death sentences. He was imprisoned for 11 years in the Soviet Gulag along with dissidents Natan Sharansky, resisting all attempts to squash his body and soul and his deepening faith and love for the promised land. In 1981, after a worldwide struggle, he was released and emigrated to Israel.
