When Jerry Lewis Visited Israel


“I’ve been trying to get here [Israel] since I was born 55 years ago. As a matter of fact, I was booked on a flight out of London the night before the Six Day War.”

– the late and great Jerry Lewis, who just passed away, after stepping off the plane in Israel in 1981. He was here for a telethon to raise money for handicapped children.
