"Eleanor Ehrenkranz's Jewish poetry anthology encapsulates the agony of the Middle East in distilled images that pierce the heart" - Tovah Feldshuh, actress
"I have to admit that I don't usually like poetry . . . But ever since I first read it, I have made an exception for Yankev Glatshteyn's Praying the Sunset Prayer, which expertly performs what I believe to be the function of art: to suggest to us why life is worth living" - Dara Horn, novelist
"I loved reading Robert Pinsky's poem The Night Game. It is wonderfully wise and evocative, characteristically American and Jewish. I see, in Pinsky's words, the limitless opportunities of America through the lens of America's game, baseball" - Senator Joseph I. Lieberman
"Rachel Korn's I Am Soaked Th rough By You is a beautifully economical history of love, soaked through with passion, tenderness and gratitude" - Judith Viorst, poet and novelist
