Hebrew Free Loan of NJ to host ‘last Jewish gangster’

MYRON SUGERMAN will discuss his life as part of the Jewish mob on Thursday, June 13, 7:30-9:30 p.m. at Oheb Shalom Congregation in South Orange.

Sugerman worked in his family’s coin-operated amusements business through which he became acquainted with members of the Cali Cartel, La Corporacion, and the Genovese and Gambino crime families. Sugerman’s colorful life is steeped in ties to the Jewish community and his adventures including attempting to help Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal track down Josef Mengele in Paraguay. 

On June 13, Myron will recount his unpredictable, dangerous life and global adventures while interweaving historical vignettes about the Jewish mob and their efforts in fighting anti-Semitism and bringing about Jewish statehood. Signed copies of Sugerman’s book “The Chronicles of the Last Jewish Gangster: From Meyer to Myron” will be available.

Hebrew Free Loan of New Jersey aims to help Jews in need become self-sufficient by providing interest-free loans. In recent years, the organization has given loans to hundreds of people in the Jewish community in the total amount of $1.5 million.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at hebrewfreeloanofnj.org/event.
