Book Review: Reading a Memoir and Hearing a Prayer

By Diane Cole

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2005

The author reviews Rabbi Mark Borovitz and Alan Eisenstock's The Holy Thief: A Con Man's Journey From Darkness to Light and Samuel Iwry's To Wear The Dust of War: From Bialystok to Shanghai To The Promised Land: An Oral History. She acknowledges the power of personal testimony conveyed in each book and expresses the wish that we, too, will remember their hope, prayer, and catharsis as we continue our own journey into the year ahead.
