DURING A RECENT visit to legendary Jewish educator Avraham Infeld in his Jerusalem home to pick up his new book, he shows me what he considers the best view in his apartment. It is a wall filled with photographs of his family, including his wife, Ellen (who hails from Woodbridge, New Jersey and whom he married in 1963), their four children, 16 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

“I have dedicated my life to building families of all sizes and in all places where Jewish families live,” Infeld writes in his autobiographic account, “A Passion for a People: Lessons from the Life of a Jewish Educator,” written elegantly together with educational consultant Clare Goldwater. “These Jewish families are important to me because we are connected through our belonging to the Jewish People, and so my career has been dedicated to exploring, sharing and developing the concept of Jewish Peoplehood.”
