Book Review | Portraits of Jewish-American Heroes
by Malka Drucker

Score: 3

This is a diverse and unique collection of biographies of Jewish Americans. What I love about this book is that it is not the usual cast of characters. Lillian Wald is in this book. Michael Schwerner and Andrew Goodman are here.  Daniel Pearl has a chapter. The illustrations are lovely and meaningful. There is a glossary , a timeline of Jewish-American History, a Bibliography and suggested reading in the back of the book.

This is an extraordinary reference book for all Jewish libraries.

Grade Level: 5th-8th
