Description: Brett Goldberg weaves the stories of the Israeli reserve soldiers who left their jobs and families to participate in Operation Defensive Shield in the spring of 2002, in the wake of an unprecedented terror bombing campaign against Israeli civilians. Goldberg follows them into the field, chronicles their victories and losses, and shows the melting pot of IDF reservists from all walks of life, looking out for buddies and maintaining their sanity and humanity as they take on the Palestinian terrorists of the city of Jenin, rigged with booby-traps and known throughout Israel as Suicide City.
"In the tradition of Orwell, Goldberg's writing is terse, gripping, direct, and fiercely honest. For historians and all open-minded people who crave to know what actually occurred at Jenin, Goldberg's 'Psalm in Jenin' makes essential reading." - Haim Chertok
"Unadorned, brutally honest, powerfully moving. Goldberg tells it like it is, a story the whole world needs to read. "Psalm" is a unique account of what it means to be a Jewish soldier, and what it means to be a human being confronting barbaric inhumanity." - Reuven Koret
