November 10, 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 the Miami Book Fair International as part of its Festival of Authors on Sunday, November 15 at 11 am.
“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.”
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.
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.
