Links in the Chain



In individual biographical essays, Naomi Pasachoff explores the contributions of philosophers, poets, and philanthropists; of mystics, statesmen, and scholars; of religious organizers and Zionist leaders. In so doing she uncovers surprising facts about well-known figures.

Illustrations and photographs accompany the text, and a biographical fact box for each profile provides for easy reference. Links in the Chain is an ideal introduction to Jewish role models for younger readers and a vital reference for all interested in Jewish history.

Naomi Pasachoff is the author of biographies of Marie Curie and Alexander Graham Bell for the Oxford Portraits in Science  series, as well as Basic Judaism for Young People  (3 volumes) and Great Jewish Thinkers: Their Lives and Work . She is a research associate at Williams College (Williamstown, MA) and holds an A.B. from Radcliffe College, Harvard University, an A.M. from Columbia University, and a Ph.D. from Brandeis University.

Links in the Chain is a perfect Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah gift.
