Jew in Jail is the true story of the nearly six years I spent incarcerated for robbery in various correctional facilites in New York State as a direct result of my past addictions to alcohol, drugs and gambling. My book details my attempts to change and get recovery from my addictions while behind bars, all the while being forced to deal with mistreatment and anti-Semitism from inmates and staff.
