With many universities now going virtual, Beth Tfiloh has decided to open our own university – no admissions tests required! Each month, BTU will bring you a diverse range of experts from the media, academia, religion and politics to educate, enlighten and unite us. These outstanding lecturers will discuss topics relevant to the new world we are living in — as Americans and as Jews. This program is made possible by a grant from the Ronnie H. and Alli Russel Charitable Foundation Inc. and The Russel Family.
It’s the story of a terrorist-turned-friend. After numerous imprisonments by Shin Bet, the Israeli intelligence service, Mosab Hassan Yousef embarked on a spiritual quest that changed his violent destiny to an advocate of peace. Is his story the story of one man, or can it happen to every man? Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of Hamas founding leader Sheikh Hassan Yousef, was an integral part of the movement. While imprisoned by the Shin Bet Israeli intelligence service, he became a vital intelligence asset for the Israeli government while Yousef served side-by-side with his father within the upper ranks of Hamas. His story was revealed in the 2008 Fox News documentary “Escape from Hamas.” Yousef ‘s first book, Son of Hamas, reveals new information about this dangerous terrorist organization and unveils the truth behind his own secret role.
