Congressman John P. Sarbanes of Maryland has entered into the U.S Congressional Record recognition of the famed Holocaust Rescue Ship, the Exodus 1947. (see copy below). The ship, out of Baltimore, was American funded and crewed.  Its historic voyage in running the British naval blockade of Palestine made it a foundation story of the modern State of Israel.  Ruth Gruber called the Exodus 1947, the "Ship that Launched a Nation". Nine other largely US manned ships sailed from the U.S.

European Nation Honored as Savior during 50th Mickey Marcus Memorial

Proclamation from Israel to the Czech Republic, Slovakia

As we look back at Israel's history during this 68th Anniversary month, we remember that the nation was in a dire situation as soon as it declared independence. An event that took place on April 17th, 2016, at the US Military Academy at West Point not only memorialized Colonel Mickey Marcus, the American graduate of West Point who became Israel's first modern general, but also thanked the Czech Republic and Slovakia with a proclamation signed by Israel's President Reuven Rivlin, stating that without Czechoslovakia's assistance, Israel's existence would not be likely today.
