Daniel Chertoff worked in the investment industry in both the United States and Israel. He was an analyst at Sanford Bernstein where he followed the computer industry. He and his family moved to Israel in 1988 where he followed Israeli high tech and helped bring a number of companies public in the US. Daniel was a venture capitalist and financial communications counsel to many publicly-traded Israeli high-tech companies. Daniel retired early to study English literature at Hebrew University and was happily writing his doctoral dissertation when he discovered his father’s letters. He is still involved in academia and is an associate editor of Partial Answers, an academic journal of literature and the history of ideas.
Daniel and his wife, Arlene, live in Jerusalem.

Mordecai Chertoff came to Palestine in 1947 as a twenty-five-year-old, determined to make his contribution to the emerging Jewish state. In vivid and often moving letters to his family Mordecai describes the news of the UN vote for partition, the siege of Jerusalem, the bombing of the Palestine Post, the declaration of the State of Israel, his travels along the dangerous Jerusalem-Tel-Aviv highway, and, inevitably, the loss of friends. The correspondence, filled with details of everyday life in Jerusalem and meetings with famous and soon-to-be-famous people, includes historical information never before disclosed. Mordecai Chertoff’s powerful first-person account allows us to re-experience a momentous turning point in Jewish history, while we accompany his son, Daniel, on his journey to penetrate into the heart and mind of his father.
