Book Details

Three groundbreaking secular Jews respond with universal values to conflicts worldwide, from the Nazi Holocaust to 21 st century genocides: historian Gerda Lerner, artist Susana Wald, and global ambassador Ruth W. Messinger. Is simultaneous commitment possible to both Jewish continuity and helping non-Jewish strangers in need? Universal values drive three Jewish feminists to become public about Jewish identity because they view the purpose of Jewish life to be alleviating inequity and suffering of all people.
