"Boris Senior told me . . . his main aim in writing [this] book was to tell of the rise of the state and the miracle that happened to the Jewish people between the most terrible period of [their] history, the Holocaust, and the wonder of the founding of an independent country and its War of Liberation. I knew that, as always, he would fulfill his promise and complete his mission in time."
"A fascinating life. . . . Senior’s use of language is rich and flowing . . . moving."
"From the moment you open this book to the reluctant moment you turn the final page, you are mesmerized. New Heavens is a story that must be told, the story of the creation of a nation and . . . the personal story of a boy who all too quickly becomes a man. It is not by chance that Tom Brokaw, in his book The Greatest Generation Speaks: Letters and Reflections, specifically names Boris Senior as one of that generation."
