From the Inside Flap:

Connect with your Jewish sisters—from both yesterday and today.

"My mother, my aunts, my own grandmothers float back to me, young and vibrant once more, making days holy in the sanctuaries of their kitchens, feeding me, cradling me, connecting me to the intricately plaited braid of their past, and even at this moment, looking down the corridor of what’s to come, I see myself join them as they open their arms wide to enfold my children and grandchildren in their embrace."
—Faye Moskowitz, And the Bridge Is Love, 1991
