A Race Against Death Initiative

In March 2007, Targum Shlishi sent copies of A Race Against Death: Peter Bergson, America, and the Holocaust by David S. Wyman and Rafael Medoff to 1,500 individuals. We hope that the book, and the information we’ve assembled here, will motivate people to address the monumental problems facing the Jewish world at this critical time, including the threat of a nuclear Iran.
