Summary

Explore the richness and diversity of Jewish heritage and history with this expansive volume of quotes from Jewish thought leaders with voices from the ancient to the modern. 

Spotlighting Jewish writers, scholars, artists, activists, and visionaries from around the world and across time, Jewish Voices celebrates the essential contributions Jews have made to the human experience. Whether or not you are Jewish, you will derive strength and meaning from their words and draw connections to your own cultural identity and community.

The inspirational quotes include: 

"Though we come from different cultures and totally different worlds, we all want the same things—to provide a good environment for our kids to grow up in. To laugh and share experiences with family and friends. To see our children grow up and achieve their dreams."
–Ben Stiller, Actor, filmmaker, comedian

"Judaism teaches that each person is an entire world. Every one of you is here to do your part for something that is more lasting and significant than yourself. What you create will ripple out from you into the world in ways you cannot possibly imagine. While the vastness of awe can make you feel very small, it also calls you to transcend yourself to moral beauty."
–Angela Buchdahl, East Asian-American Senior Rabbi of Central Synagogue, New York City

"I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year's fashions."
–Lillian Hellman, Playwright, memoirist, screenwriter

Covering a wide variety of topics, including family, activism, spirituality, feminism, and more, some of the other Jewish voices featured are:
  • Adam Sandler, American actor and comedian 
  • Golda Meir, Fourth prime minister of Israel
  • Theodor Herzl, Playwright, novelist, and journalist
  • Melinda Strauss, Jewish content creator, kosher cookbook author
  • Jonathan Sacks, English Orthodox rabbi, philosopher, theologian, and author
  • Jerry Seinfeld, American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and producer
  • Chanie Apfelbaum, Writer, cookbook author, lifestyle influencer, blogger
  • Yitzhak Rabin, Israeli politician, statesman, and general
  • Emma Lazarus, Jewish activist, author, and poet
  • Hen Mazzig, Writer, educator, activist
  • And many more

Throughout the pages, colorful works of art by Jewish artists bring the voices to life, while thoughtful mini-biographies give important to context to who the inspirational speakers are, from rabbis to influencers. 

If you are Jewish, Jewish Voices will enrich your pride in your Jewish identity. If you are not Jewish, this book will expand your appreciation for the Jewish community. People from all cultures and walks of life will be left feeling inspired, empowered, uplifted, and motivated to discover new perspectives. 

Author Biography

Dana Rubin is a consultant, speaker, a public historian, and an expert in women's voices spanning history and culture. Her Speaking While Female Speech Bank is the world's largest online collection of women's public voices, putting the spotlight on women's speeches and testimonies from across time and around the world. Women have made significant contributions to the life of our country and the world through their public voices, but the history books, curriculums, and media do not reflect that. Dana speaks to organizations on the history of women's speech, leads communication workshops, and helps companies develop their female talent to become recognized experts, brand ambassadors, thought leaders, and role models. Her women's speech archive is used by academics, teachers, and speakers as part of their instructional content, lesson plans, and curriculums, filling in the knowledge gaps. Dana has spoken at Fortune 500 companies, non-profits, and universities, and has appeared on C-SPAN and American Public Media's Marketplace. She's the author of Speaking While Female: 75 Extraordinary Speeches by American Women. Dana is a Jewish woman who actively celebrates her culture by highlighting the impacts that Jewish people have had on our society across time.
