OU Israel presents a special complimentary program

Author’s Evening with Dr. Mendy Ganchrow, MD-Former President of Orthodox Union

Thursday evening November 9th, Doors Open at 7:30 pm, Lecture to begin at 8:00pm

Mendy Ganchrow, MD, the former head of several major Jewish organizations including the Orthodox Union (OU), has revealed in a new book that while serving as president of the OU, he was recruited by the Saudi Royal Air Force to serve as a surgeon.


“The Five Day War” begins with his receipt of the recruitment letter, from the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington, asking him to serve as a surgeon in the Air Force Military Hospital in Riyadh. It gives the author’s fictional account of what might have happened if an Orthodox Jewish Zionist would have accepted the offer.

Books will be available for purchase.
