Stern and Berman

Harry Stern’s years of living in Israel gave him first-hand exposure to the country’s military and political dynamics. Extensive research of the country’s challenges, both domestic and global, strengthened his understanding of the issues facing the Jewish state.

 

In the tradition of great spy novelists John Le Carre and Daniel Silva, Stern takes on readers on an exciting, fast-paced thrill ride in his latest book, My Brothers’ Keeper. As the story unfolds, the Jewish State faces a massive air assault by Iranian pilots flying state-of-the-art Russian aircraft. Iran’s Quds Force, trained and supported by Russian advisers, plans simultaneous attacks on three Diaspora communities on Rosh Hashana, one of the holiest days on the Jewish calendar. Unit 8200, Israel’s military intelligence corps, intercepts messages among the Kremlin, Iran, and Palestinian terrorist mastermind Abu Yusalem coordinating attacks in Paris, Rome and Birmingham, Alabama. Veteran Mossad terrorist-hunter Joshua Canaan and his stunning, sharpshooting partner, Leora Bargal, are enlisted to thwart the elusive Abu Yusalem and stop the slaughter, no matter how great the cost.

 

Harry is well-known to our community as the former executive director of the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta, a position he held for 16 years. Upon retiring, he was recruited by Kennesaw State University as their Director of Global Development and charged with developing academic relationships with fifteen Arab World countries. Stern earned his Doctor of Social Welfare degree at Columbia University, and soon after, was invited to join the faculty of Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel. He also served as Director of Community Development for Southern Tel Aviv. Stern currently serves on the Board of the American Jewish Committee.
