From Heights of Alaska to the Golan Heights
Author: Rabbi Yisrael Haber
Rabbi Haber recounts his extraordinary experiences, from his service as Air Force Chaplain stationed in Alaska, through his current position as Chabad Rabbi on the Golan Heights.
With humor and good wit Haber relates the challenges of keeping Yiddishkeit alive in the frozen wilderness, and of keeping the morale high in the Golan Heights, making for an exceptional, inspirational story for all.
Originating in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, Yisrael Haber decided at a young age that he wanted to bring Jews closer to Torah - and that he wanted to travel to do it. From his basketball coach days in Dallas to his job as an Air Force chaplain in Alaska, Haber`s autobiography shows the reader what it`s like to spread Judaism to all corners of the earth - including the building of the first mikve in Alaska. Published originally in Hebrew despite having been written in English, Haber`s work has finally been translated into its original language. Haber currently runs a Chabad House in the Golan.
