IsraelCast Episode 147
Our past is filled with countless stories about Jewish leaders who changed the course of history. There are also the stories of the Jewish People’s friends beyond the Jewish faith — individuals who have dedicated their life’s work to supporting Jews despite not sharing their religion. Host Steven Shalowitz sits down with Ari Mittleman, the author of Paths of the Righteous: Stories of Heroism, Humanity and Hope, which discusses non-Jewish individuals who have gone beyond the call of duty in supporting both Israel and the Jewish People. Shalowitz and Mittleman discuss some of these individuals and how happenstance often plays an important role in making a difference.
Ari Mittleman works at the nexus of politics, policymaking, and the press in Washington, DC. Proficient in both modern and biblical Hebrew, he is an expert in traditional Jewish texts and travels regularly to Israel for research and speaking engagements. Mittleman is the author of Paths of the Righteous: Stories of Heroism, Humanity and Hope, which was published in February 2022. He has visited over 40 countries and has worked with heads of state, celebrities, and global business leaders.
