Yola Reitman, former Mossad agent, will share her key role in the operation and the story of how the courageous Israeli intelligence team, while embedded in Sudan (a country hostile to Israel), orchestrated the dramatic rescue of 6,000+ Ethiopian Jews.
Yola's story is the basis of a new feature film, “The Red Sea Diving Resort,” directed by Emmy Award-winning director Gideon Raff (“Homeland”), and starring Chris Evans, Ben Kingsley, and Greg Kinnear. The film premieres on Netflix in late July.
