Reading the book

Incredible!  From the Bronx to Bnai Brak:

Amazing True Story of Rabbi Yossi Wallis

by Rabbi Nachman Seltzer


Thursday, January 11th, 2018

Hosted by Susan Gurstel


We'll be discussing Incredible! From the Bronx to Bnei Brak: The amazing true story of Rabbi Yossi Wallis by Rabbi Nachman Seltzer. The book is very self-explanatory. It's a best seller because it's exciting, informative and reads easily. We'll be discussing three heroic men. In Book One, we start with Rafael Vallis in 1691. Book Two tells us about Yossi's Abba, Yeedle Wallis, in the 1940's. Books Three and Four take us from Yossi, the leader of the first all-Jewish gang in the Bronx, to his encounters with the Mafia, his service in the Israeli Air Force, his return to his Torah heritage and his role in Arachim.  Rabbi Allouche was inspired by Yeedle's story beginning on page 159, but don't miss the fun chapter on Pepe, page 324. It's sweet!
