Description

In 1947, Israel’s war for independence began, a war for the very existence of the State. Many came to participate in the war, leaving their families, jobs, and comfortable lives behind.

The “Jew’s Secret Fleet” is the only authentic book that covers the full participation of 240 volunteers from North America that participated in operation Aliyah Bet, the illegal immigration of Jews to Palestine. These men sailed from the USA to Europe on 10 ships, bringing some 35,000 survivors of the Holocaust to British-Mandate Palestine. The book describes their incredible journeys.

“With careful documentation and often poignant and amusing anecdotes, Joseph Hochstein and Murray Greenfield have recorded the historic role that American volunteers played in the birth of Israel – an inspiring and exciting part of history that must never be forgotten.” -Ruth Gruber, author of “Raquela: A Woman of Israel”

Murry S. Greenfield

Born and raised in New York City, Murray Greenfield served in the merchant marines during WWII when he heard about ‘Aliyah Bet’ (“illegal immigration” as the British termed the rescue of Jews who survived the Holocaust). He joined the American volunteers who sailed in defiance of the British blockade. After spending time in a British prison on the isle of Cyprus, Murray eventually moved to Israel at age 20. He continued to volunteer for many public organizations, and is on the board of various associations and organizations.
