Table of Contents

This outstanding book looks at the long and difficult fight for civil rights through the words and actions of selected Jewsih activists. To tell the story of the contributions Jews have made to this struggle, the author focuses on the work of four individuals whose work spans four centuries; Asser Levy, Rabbi David Einhorn, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel and Lillian Wald. Their work as well as the efforts of many others in the Jewish community, made significant difference in securing rights for all.
