Here’s what one reviewer on Goodreads had to say about my book, A Mezuzah on the Door. “This book helped me to realize that you should disregard your values, traditions and beliefs simply because you are in an environment where […]

What rhymes with Nineveh?

posted by Homeshuling

I know it’s not near Yom Kippur, but my brilliant, creative (and single just long enough to start dating again) brother just posted this to Youtube. It’s a song about Nineveh, the town that saved itself by doing to teshuvah, […]
