Hello Rev,

I really enjoyed reading your piece in theshabbatdrop. I am a product of a non-Jewish mother and Jewish father. I was given a love of reading from my mother and a love of music from both of them. I am now in the process of connecting to my Jewish side.

I related to getting lost in books and it being another world. I read My Name is Asher Lev in school and was fascinated by the story. I am so excited to have found your writing.

Hi Christopher,

Thank you for your comment. I also received a love for reading from my mother and a solid music education from my father (two things which I am now trying to pass down to my own son)

My Name is Asher Lev is one of my favorite books! I actually wrote about my experience with it for the blog Bookishly Jewish. You can find my article here: https://bookishlyjewish.com/?p=106

I don't know if this is the place to post this, but I am also a Jewish writer. I live in Israel. I have written three Jewish multicultural sci-fi novels called Masoth: The Journey Beyond; Masoth: Ascending the Core; and Masoth: The Path from Ophirian.

The information about my novels can be found at my site below.
