I write feature stories and humor pieces and am working on a book of poems for children about the Jewish holidays. My presentation, “Religion and Humor: The Historical and the Hysterical,” amuses audiences at synagogues and community groups. I have been published in Woman’s Day, Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop, TAB newspapers, Natick Patch, The Jewish Advocate, MetroWest Daily News, Metrowest Jewish Reporter, Boston Herald; NursingWorld Journal; and the Journal of College Placement. I co-authored the discussion guide for the Alan Dershowitz documentary film “The Case for Israel,” shown worldwide.
