The True Story of Mossad’s Fake Diving Resort
Tuesday, May 25 @ 2 pm EDT
Description: Raffi Berg, BBC journalist and author of Red Sea Spies will Zoom in live from London to talk about this amazing true story.
Secret agents, a lost Biblical tribe and a fake holiday resort - brought together in one of the most astonishing operations ever carried out by Israel's intelligence service. Raffi Berg's debut book Red Sea Spies - written in collaboration with the commander of the mission - lifts the lid on how the Mossad smuggled thousands of Ethiopian Jews to Israel in the early 1980s, ingeniously using a bogus hotel as cover and becoming the inspiration for a Netflix film.
