Stars & Stripes Committee of Temple Solel invites you to join us as we hear the first hand account and heroic story of Operation Thunderbolt: The Raid on Entebbe, as told by Sassy Reuven, a veteran of the Israeli Defense Force who participated in the counter-terrorist hostage-rescue mission carried out by commandos of the Israel Defense Forces at Entebbe Airport in Uganda on July 4, 1976.
Sassy vividly reenacts the events as he leaps out of the Hercules C130 to save the passengers. His story takes you through the preparation of the mission to its completion with the safe return of the hostages to Israel, and discusses Israel’s special focus on terrorism. Will history repeat itself?
Desserts and coffee will be served. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
Proceeds will go to support STAND DOWN and homeless veterans.
