Tweet The very first review of The Hebrew Kid and the Apache Maiden from a Native American has finally been published, and it comes from a very interesting source.

Tweet There’s a wonderful, and truly hilarious account of how one large Orthodox family read their one and only copy of The Hebrew Kid and the Apache Maiden, in Virtual Jerusalem today. The article is written by Nechama Kravitz. She’s a college student, and take it from me, she’s a natural writer.

Tweet The May issue of Hadassah Magazine has a short article about Seraphic Press by the fine journalist Sarah Bronson. I love this modest piece because Libby Goldberg, a most attentive Editor, chose to run one of my favorite pictures of me with Ariel. Unfortunately, you can’t read the article on-line. But here’s a composite [...]
Tweet Seraphic Press is, by any standards, a pretty small, modest company, but one with BIG ideas. I stay up half the night dreaming up books, magazines and DVD’s that I’d like to publish.
