About the Book:

What does it mean to be a righteous person in these uncertain times… When anti-Semitic violence has rocked the Jewish community, it’s common to turn inward. Our heroes who give us hope shine a light through dark times. Throughout history, Jewish leaders have shown our community and humanity what it means to rise to the occasion.

But do you know the stories of non-Jewish luminaries that uplift our community while inspiring their own?

In Paths of the Righteous, discover eight individuals who have gone above and beyond for Israel and the Jewish people during a difficult and turbulent period. Largely unheralded and not in the headlines, their stories can inspire us. They each demonstrate unique attributes. No matter how hidden it may seem during an uncertain journey and challenging times, collectively they teach us what it means to pursue a righteous path in the twenty-first century.

King Solomon in Proverbs wrote: “The path of the righteous is like the light of dawn; it shines ever brighter until the day is perfect.”

Black, White and Latino from Africa, Europe and North America, you will meet four men and four women you won’t soon forget. They prove true this verse and demonstrate the true meaning of this verse.
