Note: 
The author profiles 21 Jewish men and women who have enriched the country through their achievements in a wide range of activities, including science, sports, films and civil rights over a span of two centuries. The mixed media illustrations explore something distinctive about each subject: a realistic portrait of Rachel “Ray” Frank shows this famous speaker’s quiet strength and suggests the force of her personality; Gloria Steinem’s portrait is in a pop art style, setting her own media fame during the period when pop artists like Andy Warhol and Jim Dyne were at the height of their popularity; one of the most engaging portraits is of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel because his face is drawn with bold lines and painted in a rainbow of colors, suggesting his commitment to racial equality.
