December 24, 2009 – Aryeh Rubin, editor of Jewish Sages of Today: Profiles of Extraordinary People (Devora Publishing and Targum Shlishi, 2009), will discuss the just-published book in a presentation at Books & Books Bal Harbour Shops on Thursday, January 7 at 7:30pm. This is the official Miami launch of the book, and the public is invited to attend. Please join us, bring your friends, and pass along this announcement!
Mr. Rubin will be joined at the event by Rabbi Sholom Lipskar, who is one of the individuals profiled in the book and the rabbi at The Shul of Bal Harbour. The 27 accomplished individuals profiled in the book are an eclectic group, drawn from a variety of professions and ranging in religious observance. The common denominator is that all are committed to improving our world.
“There is a very real and urgent need in today’s culture for us to be aware of the example being set by those profiled in the book and others like them,” explains Mr. Rubin. “The people profiled in the book are living exemplary lives and are dedicated to Jewish values. In this dominant celebrity culture, it’s important to draw attention to true heroes, our sages. Our hope is that the book will inspire and motivate its readers to foster positive change in the Jewish world.”
Mr. Rubin is the founder and director of Targum Shlishi, a foundation dedicated to supporting innovative projects that promote positive change in the Jewish world. He is also the founding partner and managing director of The Maot Group, an investment company. Prior to founding The Maot Group in 1991, Mr. Rubin was in the publishing field, first as the founder and publisher of Jewish Living magazine in the late 1970s and then as the publisher of the New York–based KSF Group, a medical publishing company.
