(Courtesy of Jewish Leaders Books) Jewish Leaders Books, the first imprint uniquely positioned to help tell the stories of members of this dynamic community, has just released its second title, Happily Jewish. The latest accolade of the imprint’s founder and multiple New York Times bestselling author Michael Levin, the book explores the cultural impact and lasting applicability of 20 Jewish-philosophical scholars who have fundamentally shaped Jewish thinking and practice over our 3,000-year-old collective trajectory.
With each chapter highlighting the scholars’ intriguing biographical information and their written ideas that have transformed Judaism, the book not only provides an unparalleled roadmap for understanding the evolution of Jewish thought but also the most critical takeaways for practical application. From books spanning ancient Judaism through modern times, Levin highlights the works of Judaism’s most prolific Torah scholars, including contributions from King David’s Psalms and Maimonides’ Mishneh Torah, to the more contemporary contributions of household names such as the extensive collections of Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks as well as Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis.
“Jewish scholars have inspired us through their work and taught us to think differently about something we may have learned in the past. Whether it is opening a book from the Rambam or a contemporary figure such as Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, their teachings have helped shape our daily lives,” said Levin. “Happily Jewish is a compilation of 20 of the most inspiring Jewish leaders and their teachings in a compact way that is easy to follow.”
Levin, a 30-year industry veteran, has worked with high-profile authors from a wide range of backgrounds including Major League Baseball legend Dave Winfield, FBI agent Joaquin “Jack” Garcia, motivational author Zig Ziglar, and George Floyd’s aunt, Angela Harrison, among hundreds of others. Leveraging his relationships with small and large publishing houses, Simon and Schuster included, Jewish Leaders Books provides aspiring authors with access to Levin’s unique mastery of storytelling and publishing filtered through his first-hand insight into the American Jewish experience.
