Recent projects

Here are links to some of the projects I’ve had the pleasure of working on lately:

The Hidden Jews of Ethiopia: The Beta Israel of Kechene and North Shewa tells a compelling story of a community demonstrating resilience and creativity in the face of extraordinary hardship and discrimination. If you want to purchase a copy in paperback (far more affordable than the hardcover!), send me an email.

Max K. Strassfeld’s Trans Talmud: Androgynes and Eunuchs in Rabbinic Literature will interest students of the Talmud, anyone in the fields of gender studies or rabbinics, trans theory, or intersex theory.

This book should help Chinese Medicine practitioners everywhere figure out strategies for helping people with Covid-19. It records the experiences of Chinese Medicine practitioners in China during the first months of the pandemic. It also includes some poetry about the pandemic.

Rebecca Subar’s When to Talk and When to Fight: The Strategic Choice between Dialogue and Resistance is geared to activists trying to figure out their best strategy at a given moment, but it will also help other people figure out this crucial strategic question, even in much more mundane circumstances.

Here are two really interesting anthologies from Marla Brettschneider and her colleagues: Africana Jewish Journeys and LGBTQ Politics.

The books I list above are ones that I edited. Here’s one that I wrote together with Duchess Harris: check out The Dreamers and DACA, especially if there are any middle-school or high school students in your life! In addition to describing DACA and explaining who the dreamers are, the book also gives an accessible history of immigration to the US. Although the intended audience is tweens and teens, most adults will also find it informative.

Your book could join this list. Contact me to discuss it.
