Paths of the Righteous: Stories of Heroism, Humanity and Hope
A virtual author talk with Ari Mittleman and Lt. Aston Bright
Wednesday, Nov. 9th | 7:00 PM ET

Advanced registration required by Tues., Nov. 8th

What does it mean to be a righteous person in these uncertain times? When antisemitic violence has rocked the Jewish community, it’s common to turn inward. Our Jew­ish heroes who give us hope and shine a light through dark times. Throughout history, Jewish leaders have shown our community and humanity what it means to rise to the occasion. But do you know the stories of non-Jewish luminaries that uplift our community while inspiring their own? In Paths of the Righteous, discover eight non-Jewish unheralded leaders who have gone above and beyond for Israel and the Jewish people in recent years. Black, White and Latino from Africa, Europe and North America, you will meet four men and four women you won’t soon forget.

Author Ari Mittleman will be joined for this special discussion by one of the featured subjects of his book, Lt. Aston Bright of the Plantation, Florida Fire Department, who served on a volunteer firefighter corps fighting fires from incendiary devices along the Gaza border.

The book is available to order from our local partner, Longfellow Books.  Limited signed copies are available.
