Explore the richness and diversity of Jewish heritage and history with this expansive volume of quotes from Jewish figures. 

Immerse yourself in the stirring words of Jewish poets and scholars, politicians and performers, artists and visionaries from ancient to contemporary times.

Read their words and draw inspiration from their life stories in this celebratory and life-affirming volume. Featuring the striking artwork of Jewish artists from around the world, Jewish Voices gives inspiration and hope to all.

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
