It’s almost Chanukah — the perfect time to give the gift of “The Skeptic and the Rabbi”
“Wow I loved this book! . . . This could easily be the author’s literary legacy.”
“She writes with honesty, joy and wit about her spiritual journey and I enjoyed and benefited from every page. The memoir begins with her wedding day and ends with the wedding of their oldest son . . . I recommend this book for anyone who wants to know what a Torah-observant life looks like; anyone who has ever struggled with issues of faith; anyone who is on any kind of spiritual quest.”
“I found the book very insightful and could not put it down. Read it in 6 hours.”
“This is a book that will stay with you for a very long time. It is food for the soul.”
