About

Thanks taking a look into the campaign. Let me first explain the purpose and importance of this project:

Hi, my name is Leon Sakkal, author of the soon-to-be-released “Jewmerica”.

The purpose of this book is to share a wealth of knowledge about Jewish history in America. The incredible story of this minority religion is sure to leave readers, both Jews and non-Jews alike - inspired, motivated, and very much informed on this exciting topic.

I hope to truly raise an awareness of Jewish life in America, and bring readers to a better understanding of the major hardships they’ve faced, and continue to face, as a minority religion in the United States, and the world.

How it's Done

  • The information offered in Jewmerica is the result of extensive research; every detail is factual.
  • After it's completion in 2 months time, Jewmerica will be sent for professional editing and proofreading. The final draft will be approved by the author only after the work is determined flawless. 
  • The Book's layout and design will be constructed by highly reputable graphic designers.
  • Finally: Once written, edited, proofread, and designed, Jewmerica will be sent for it's first printing in a stunning 6x9 paperback book. It will likewise be available for download on top eBook websites.

As mentioned in the video promo, we’ll be exploring the lives of some major Jewish personalities, such as politicians, prominent laymen, religious leaders, and some truly incredible, incredible Jewish women.

My Humble Appeal

I’ve decided to make this campaign and turn to you, the public, for assistance in making this book a reality. The cost of printing this beautiful, extensive work isn’t cheap, and I kindly call on you to help me spread the word of the many Jewish accomplishments and plights we’ve seen throughout history.

Following the much-expected success of the paperback edition, it will be sent for print in a bigger, more handsome hardcover edition. 

"What's with the Name?"

I often get asked by friends an colleagues why I've chosen this seemingly offensive title. The word Jewmerica, until now, has been unofficially used derogatorily to claim "The Jews control America". I am in the process of attaining the legal rights to the Term, in hope of coining the word with a new interpretation: Jewmerica - A word in reference to the great contribution the Jewish People have given to their beloved country, the United States of America. 

Your support is greatly appreciated.

Risks and challenges

While the risks are not likely, there is the slight possibility the Book might not meet the expected deadline.
I, along with a team of a few others involved in seeing this book through, hope to have the book fully completed and available for download in the beginning of August, with the paperback available towards the end of the month. If, for whatever reason, we do not meet our deadline, backers will be notified and given the option of a refund -or they can choose to wait out the extra time until the Books arrival at their door!
