Jonathan Rosenblum is a people person.
These one hundred portraits describe those
who had a great impact on his life -
most unheralded outside their family and
community, some world famous; most
of whom he knew personally, some only
through researching their lives.

Yonoson Rosenblum has an incredible eye for searching out
exceptional people disguised as ordinary ones. These people do not
seek fame or glory; they simply respond to the tasks that Hashem sets
It takes Yonoson's sharp eye to spot these people, and his beautiful
pen to convey their extraordinary accomplishments, while maintaining

If the wise man is one who learns something from each individual he
encounters, Jonathan Rosenblum is wise indeed. In these incisive
portraits, he masterfully captures the most exceptional and admirable
qualities of a wide range of men and women, both renowned and
"ordinary." In doing so, he challenges each of us to cultivate these
exemplary qualities within ourselves.
