Stand-Up Nation: Israeli Resilience in the Wake of Disaster


A detailed and inspiring portrait of Israel’s impact around the world.

Since the horrific attacks of October 7, 2023, and throughout the ensuing war against Hamas and its Iranian sponsors, one thing has never wavered: the extraordinary resilience of the Israeli people.

Forged from more than seventy-five years of adversity, the legendary determination of Israel’s population has enabled the nation to survive and even thrive through constant tragedy and external threats.

But Israeli strength is not just about buttressing the Jewish state; it is also reflected in the values and powerful altruism that the Israeli people demonstrate toward others throughout the world. In this book, you’ll experience the remarkable, inspiring, and often unbelievable stories of Israel’s unsung heroes: individuals who are risking their lives to save others and partnering with people around the world to build stronger, healthier, and more prosperous societies.

Stand-Up Nation is more than a celebration of Israel—it’s a blueprint for social entrepreneurs asking if one person can actually make a meaningful difference and help heal our suffering world.
