Hal’s Navy
by Cdr. Harold Sacks, USN (Ret.)

A literature-loving Jewish boy from the Bronx, Hal Sacks joined the U.S. Navy for a three-year stint and ended up serving his country for 20 years. Along the way he fought in the Korean and Vietnam Wars, became a ship’s captain, and retired as a commander with multiple commendations. Tidewater’s own Hal Sacks—storyteller extraordinaire—and long-time book review editor for Jewish News, fills Hal’s Navy with descriptive, insightful, and often humorous recollections of battles, adventures, family and community.

Join Sacks as he recounts a few of his stories and signs copies of his newly published book.

The event, which is part of the Lee and Bernard Jaffe* Family Jewish Book Festival, takes place at the Sandler Family Campus.

Presented in partnership with Tidewater Jewish Foundation.
