An absorbing, inspiring tour of the 350-year Jewish American adventure.
?From its beginnings, America, founded on religious freedom, has been a land of opportunity for Jews, socially, economically, and spiritually,? writes Rabbi Malka Drucker in introducing twenty compelling individuals who have enriched our country by their achievements. In areas including science, sports, filmmaking, and civil rights, we meet male and female heroes who set an example, made a positive difference, and took a risk to do it. This beautifully produced volume spans three centuries of history, beginning with Haym Solomon and ending with Daniel Pearl. Each individual?s likeness, spirit, and contribution are captured in a distinctive and striking color portrait created with a variety of different media.
