Just found out about this beefy-look­ing ref­er­ence col­lec­tion on Jew­ish Amer­i­cans–a new addi­tion to an ongo­ing series from Salem Press.

The 4‑volume Great Lives from His­to­ry: Jew­ish Amer­i­cans fea­tures 646 essays cov­er­ing 653 peo­ple from the 18th cen­tu­ry to the present.

Bonus: schools and libraries that pur­chase the book set also get access to the online ver­sion of the con­tent for free.

Sam­ple arti­cles on Han­nah ArendtChaim Potok, Hen­ry Kissinger, and oth­ers are avail­able for pre-pur­chase perusal.
