About the Book

Sing-Sing prison opened in 1828, and since then, more than 7,000 Jews have served time in the famous correctional facility. The Jews of Sing-Sing is the first book to fully expose the scope of Jewish criminality over the past 160 years. Besides famous gangsters like Lepke Buchalter, thousands of Jews committed all types of crimes from incest to arson to selling air rights over Manhattan—and found themselves doing time in Sing-Sing.
