"I have read Jacob’s Voices with pleasure, profit, and intense admiration. In the field of American-Jewish autobiography, it ranks with such distinguished works as Irving Howe’s A Margin of Hope and Alfred Kazin’s A Walker in the City. Auerbach’s book also, however, belongs in the genre of personal commentary on Israel and therefore invites comparison with such works as David Grossman’s The Yellow Wind and Amos Oz’s In the Land of Israel. But no writer in either genre integrates the personal experience of American Jewish life with that of Israeli life in the original, startling, and highly revealing way that Auerbach does."Edward Alexander, University of Washington
