Her newest book has won several awards:  Gold Winner through the Nonfiction Author’s Association, 5- star Reader’s Favorite, and a finalist International book. In addition, her book has been praised by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, best-selling author of more than 30 books on Jewish ethics and literacy. Telushkin states:

“This book is very powerful and very beautiful.  What I have read is passionate, very spiritual, and well-reasoned, three things that don’t always go together. I particularly love the analysis of the word matzpun [conscience] and its variety of related meanings, and I was profoundly moved by the journey you took and how you came to write this book.”
