The Adult Education committees of Cong. Rinat Yisrael and Cong. Beth Aaron will host Nitsana Darsha-Leitner, Israeli activist attorney and a leader in the fight against Palestinian and Islamic terror group financing, on Sunday, November 5, at 8 p.m. in the Rinat social hall.

Darsha-Leitner will be speaking on her new book: “Harpoon: Inside the Covert War Against Terrorism’s Money Masters.” “Harpoon” is the story of legendary Mossad director Meir Dagan and the top-secret task force he created to wage a spectacular cloak-and-dagger campaign targeting the finances that funded attacks against Israel. Dagan’s unit was one of Israel’s most guarded state secrets, and assembling the book required in-depth research and coordination with the country’s security services so that the manuscript could be cleared and approved for publication. The unit’s name of “Harpoon” was only recently declassified.

Nitsana Darshan-Leitner is an Israeli attorney, human rights activist and the founder of the Shurat HaDin Israeli Law Center. She is a crusading lawyer who serially sues rogue nations, terror groups and international banks on behalf of terror victims to show, as she puts it, “there is a price for Jewish blood.” She is also a celebrated media personality appearing in the press, on radio and television including Israeli talk show programs, Voice of Israel, CNN, BBC, European television, the Jerusalem Report and many American and Canadian publications. In 2014, she was named one of the 50 most influential Jews by The Jerusalem Post.
