Description:

Meet some ordinary people...

People like Ephraim Lerner, a businessman traveling to Miami to clinch a profitable real estate deal. Women like Sarah Davidson, who takes in a child for a morning of babysitting as a favor to a neighbor. Men like Ben Sherman, struggling to take care of his ailing mother. Ordinary people, just like you and me.

who make extraordinary choices...

Like everyone, these "ordinary" people face choices and challenges. And in just one moment, they can choose the path of greatness.

in the extraordinary stories...

Extraordinary Stories about Ordinary People is an inspiring collection of true stories about real people who chose well, who chose wisely, and who, without publicity or fame, achieved greatness. It is the story of people like Ralph Shwebel, a Jewish wrestler who longed to learn Talmud, and who was eulogized by Rav Moshe Feinstein zt'l himself. It is the story of two Jews and a loaf of bread in Auschwitz. It is the story of Reb Betzalel, the "milkman" of Shaarei Chesed, with his unusual views of new-found wealth. It is the story of people struggling with overdrafts or with death, with shidduchim or hunger - and it is the story of how Jews take their struggles and transform them into triumphs.

of this extraordinary book.

Written in a dramatic and powerful style that brings these true stories to life, Extraordinary Stories about Ordinary People is a book that entertains as it inspires. As we savor these stories, with their plot twists and unexpected endings, we come to realize that the ordinary people who accomplish such extraordinary things can be our neighbors, our friends, our family. Indeed, "ordinary" people who achieve extraordinary greatness -- can even be us.
