“The Last Jewish Gangster” – An Evening with Myron Sugarman
December 13, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The history of the Mob and the history of Jews in America are intertwined, and it’s a history that Myron Sugerman, author of the recently released book The Las Jewish Gangster from Meyer to Myron, traces from the earliest days of the Mafia to the present day. Sugerman tells the Mob story from a Jewish viewpoint, with stories gleaned from his firsthand experiences and family connections with some of the most infamous Jewish mobsters.
While this talk does not condone any of the illegal activities which the mob is accused of, it does, however, share some of the unknown positive contributions of some of the most fascinating Jewish Mobster personalities.
Sugerman will discuss:
How the Mob fought the American Nazi Party in the 1930s.
How they provided vigilance on the piers of New York during World War II and their cooperation with the U.S. Department of Navy Intelligence.
How they secured arms for Palestine in violation of the Neutrality Act.
How the Italians and Irish Union members on the piers of New York cooperated to send arms to Palestine.
Program to include the Lighting of the menorah, delicious Latkes and Refreshments.
