With the help of Ari Kidron, a hothead agent, the Mossad ventured on a dangerous journey through the desert of Sudan to rescue Ethiopian Jews from Sudan in 1978. In order to not arouse suspicion, Ari and his team operated under the guise of a European vacation company, the Mossad leased a resort on the shores of the Red Sea. The Mossad’s Red Sea Diving Resort operated for 5 years. Over the course of that time they saved tens of thousands of refugees and brought them to Israel.

Acclaimed photographer Jay Maisel bought a six-story, 72-room building on the Bowery in 1966.
