My most recently published book, THE LOST MATRIARCH: Finding Leah in the Bible and Midrash, continues to find new friends and readers. I’m still enjoying opportunities to give book talks and teach classes (recently on Zoom sessions) about The Lost Matriarch for universities, synagogues, and private study groups.

Sneak Peek at
My Current Work in Progress:
I’m very excited to report that, with the help of some generous Beta-draft readers, I finally sent a revised manuscript of my current work in progress to my editor for the first step in the pre-publication phase. It has been a very long but fascinating labor of research and discovery, and I’m now hoping that I’ll be able to share news about a scheduled date of publication around the end of 2022.
The publisher will have the final word on the title and cover image, but I can tell you that my working title has been Henry VIII and His Rabbis. It tells the history of Henry VIII’s six years of struggle to divorce his first wife and queen, Catherine of Aragon, and marry Anne Boleyn. I think you’ll enjoy the surprising details of how, in an England without Jews, King Henry came to rely upon Jewish law, as interpreted by contemporary Rabbis and Jewish scholars, in his attempt to convince Pope Clement VII to annul his marriage.
If you’re a history fan, and especially if you’re a fan of early Tudor history or early Renaissance Jewish history, you may want to keep up to date on my publication schedule. I’ll be happy to keep you posted; just send your email address to:
