by Batya Podos
Trade Paperback, 202 pages
Rebecca is a thirteen year old girl about to have her Bat Mitzvah, but she isn’t even sure she wants to be Jewish. When she discovers a magical talisman wrapped in her great-great- grandfather’s tallis (prayer shawl), the ghosts of her ancestors begin to show up. She wants to send the dead back to where they belong, but they have other plans. As she searches for a way to unlock the power of the talisman, she is pulled into a journey she could never have imagined, and along the way discovers the true meaning of family.
An engineer, a storyteller, and an interfaith minister with a background in the sciences join hearts and minds to explore the power of the language we speak and the stories we tell. In the process they discover new hope that humanity can, indeed, find the way to live harmoniously on and with this beautiful planet Earth.

Ruth Miller’s Mary’s Power
Our histories focus almost entirely on small groups of men making big decisions in big buildings in cities, but most folks living at any given time were not affected by their maneuverings, and in fact, lived life on a very different basis of power. This book looks at “the other half” of the story, explaining how history and religion came to focus on those men, how that tendency affects our lives now, and what new ways of being are emerging. The key to understanding what’s happening today rests with Mary the mother of Jesus, the Magdalene, and their predecessors.
