Great news: My book is out!

Hello everyone,

Hope everybody had a nice Sukkos. My Chanuka novel, Swords and Scrolls, is now available from the Jewish Children’s Book Club. It is intended for teens and adults. Here is the description from the web site:

Eretz Yisrael in the days of King Antiochus: Fifteen year old Elisha is curious about the mysterious new building in Yerushalayim, while his newly married cousin Rivka is suspicious of the changes that threaten to disturb her peaceful existence. Rumors abound that a large army is on its way. Will Rivka have the courage to stand up for her beliefs and will Elisha win the battle raging in his soul? includes historical notes.

You can purchase the book here. Or, if you don’t have internet access, please email me for info.

Hope you enjoy it. Feedback very much welcome!

Story in Hamodia’s Sukkos supplement and three articles in Jewish Home

My story, Our Light Will Shine, is in Hamodia’s Sukkos Story Supplement. It’s historical fiction, set in Chanuka times, with a glimpse into the simchas beis hashoeva in the Beis Hamikdash.

In Jewish Home this week: an article about addiction and a new Jewish rehab in the Greater LA area, an inspiring story about a Jewish woman with no family who received a proper Jewish burial after weeks of legal hurdles, and an article about the upcoming Israel Gap Year Fair in Los Angeles, on page 6 of the Sukkos edition of the Jewish Home.

Have a wonderful Shabbos and an amazing Yom Tov!
