Hi I’m an African American who has always been fascinated by the Jewish people, their history, their resilience and their will to always achieve success in the face of irrational hatred and persecution from others.
I’m requesting if anyone here can recommend me texts/quotes/stories/knowledge passed down from generations from the perspective of Jewish people on what it means to have physical, mental, and spiritual fortitude, to plan, survive, and defeat the enemy in times of hardship and adversity.
Having read only a few examples of these so far, they have been extremely uplifting, and coming from a group that also experiences irrational discrimination and injustice, these works have never failed to resonate with me well.
Thanks in advance to anyone who contributes.
