YM: If all the doors were open and money was not and object, what you like to be doing for the Jewish people?

RYM: I would like to influence people by explaining the Jewish dream.

In a world that is full of challenges and problems, Rabbi Mendelevitch’s story should be a lesson for all of us that any mountain, no matter how high, can be overcome by the unlimited power of the human spirit.

For anyone interested in reading the Rabbi’s complete story with all the details, his book, Unbroken Spirit, has recently been translated into English and is available now at Amazon or Gefen Publishing.

  1. Tzvi Fishman says:

    Rabbi Mendelevitch is indeed a true Jewish hero. His book "Unbroken Spirit" should be read by everyone. Especially by our young people who are so desperate for true Jewish heroes of bravery, idealism, and substance. I recommend the book highly.
