The women profiled in this collection of absorbing essays--some known throughout the world, others known only within their own communities--all share one key trait: whether religious or secular, they are driven by their commitment to Judaism to engage in acts of kindness. In profiling women such as Ruth Gruber, who helped hundreds of Jewish refugees escape from war-torn Europe, or Wendy Kay, who regularly invites teenagers to her home for Shabbat, The Jewish Woman Next Door provides contemporary role models that readers will admire and be able to emulate.
