From Enemy to Friend:
Jewish Wisdom and the Pursuit of Peace
Her voice is gentle, wise, and modest. Yet, her moral insistence that peace is attainable shines on every page. In the end, this book is one of hope. It has the rare virtue – if only we her readers possess the openness and courage – of changing how we are in the world.

Chancellor, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion
