Episode 4: The Jewish Army That Never Was
In 1940, the Zionist movement's three most prominent leaders each made independent journeys to America in the hopes of raising a Jewish army to fight Hitler. All of them failed. In his new book, Racing Against History, Rich Richman recounts this incredible episode in modern Jewish history. He joins Kikar to discuss his book and what the failure of these Zionist leaders can teach us about American Jewry today. Kikar is brought to you by the Jewish Leadership Conference (JLC).
