CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. – Author and journalist Martin Fletcher will speak at Temple Beth El’s Shabbat services on Friday, Nov. 21, on the subject of his recent book, “Jacob’s Oath” at 8 p.m.
Fletcher, a former bureau chief in Tel Aviv for NBC News, has previously spoken at Beth El about “Breaking News,” his memoir about his career as a journalist in the Middle East and other global hot spots.
His most recent book, “Jacob’s Oath” is a work of historical fiction, which focuses on the lives of Jacob Klein, a concentration camp survivor, and Sarah Kaufman, a woman he met immediately after the war and who had been in hiding during the war. The book deals with the period leading up to and immediately following the German surrender in May 1945 and Jacob’s desire to revenge the murder of his younger brother by a sadistic camp guard.
“Jacob’s Oath” will be available for purchase after services and is currently available at the Village Bookstore in Pleasantville.
The event is free and open to the public.
