Beth David Book Discussion Group: Spies of No Country: Secret Lives at the Birth of Israel

December 14, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Tuesday December 14, 7:30 – 9:00 p.m.
This tale of Israel’s first spies reads like an espionage novel, but it is all true. Four agents at the center of this story were part of a ragtag unit known as the “Arab” Section, consisting of Jews who were native to the Arab world and had Arab identities, intended to gather intelligence and perform sabotage. In 1948, with Israel’s existence precarious, they went undercover in Beirut, where they spent two years operating out of a newsstand, collecting intelligence, and sending messages to Israel via a radio. This unit eventually emerged as the nucleus of Mossad, Israel’s vaunted intelligence agency. Please note, the paperback edition has a slightly different subtitle. Discussion led by Alex Drukarev. To connect with Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/96289959946?pwd=WnNFT2ZSWkxkcGJ0L1NaQXVZSlhNZz09 To connect by phone, call (669) 900-6833, Meeting ID: 962 8995 9946, Password: 498102
