Product Details


“This invitingly illustrated collective biography celebrates 20 Jewish American heroes in all their diversity: their lives and work, the obstacles they overcame, their strong American roots, and their pride in being Jewish. The nicely designed volume includes full-page portraits of the subjects in various media: Levi Strauss is painted on denim; Einstein is depicted in a collage; astronaut Judith Arlene Resnik is seen with a spaceship in the background . . .  Drucker’s eloquent, chatty style opens up big issues about Judaism as a source of idealism and for a just, compassionate society. The bibliography and the Jewish American history time line will lead interested readers on to more information.”–Booklist

“Drucker’s admiration for each person comes through loud and clear, and may drive readers to seek out fuller biographies. Back matter extends the book’s usefulness as a report starter. A perfect resource for Jewish American Heritage Month in May or Jewish Book Month in November.”–School Library Journal
