Confessions of A Jewish Hijacker: The story of the underground Jewish movement and its decision to hijack a Soviet plane to freedom

Rabbi Yosef Mendelevich made world news when, in 1970, at age 22, he made a daring attempt to escape the Soviet Union with fellow Jews on a small tourist aircraft. He was arrested and imprisoned in the Soviet Gulag for 11 years. He resisted all efforts to squash his beliefs, his spirit, and his strength. This is a man of faith, courage, and a spirit of survival.
