Like the Stars of the Heavens by Helen Zegerman Schwimmer. Unlike the fleeting stardom of celebrities who walk the red carpet, the essence of the stars who shine in this volume is their inner light which leads them to lead lives of purpose and meaning.
By weaving together stories about luminaries in the fields of medicine, the arts, education, law, religion and the media with personal vignettes about her own life, the author reveals a parallel universe where Jews don't kvetch, they kvell, about their meaningful relationships, their good fortune and their faith. Softcover. 215 pages.
