More About the Author

My author photo was taken at the Ramon crater in the Negev, Israel. The crater is 40km long, shaped like a heart and is a great place for a writer to be inspired. I'm smiling now, but the bike ride wasn't easy. My books are all set in Israel and inspired by the people, the land, the culture and climate.

Even though the word Passover is part of the title, the holiday is only mentioned briefly. The story is set in modern Israel during Passover and takes place at the archaeological ruins at Hezekiah’s Tunnel. King Hezekiah was one of Kings of Judea. He reigned in the late 8th and early 7th century BCE.

The main character, Jodie, would like to follow in her father’s footsteps and become an archaeologist. She is eager to show her cousins the famous underground tunnel that was built to keep Jerusalem safe in the event of an attack. During her adventure, she brings a flashlight that she had received for finding the afikomen during her Passover Seder and matzah sandwiches. The illustrations highlight the dichotomy of Jerusalem- archaeological ruins amidst modern buildings and the eeriness of walking through a dark and wet tunnel. As Jodie and her cousin explored, they were able to solve the “riddle of the middle” and also retrieve an ancient coin. Even though the story does not focus on Passover, it provides valuable information about Israel and the importance of archeology. An author’s note or explanation would have enabled readers to understand more about ancient Israel and Passover.

The story was cute, unfortunately, too young of a read for even an 8 yr. old. Will have to save it for when next grandchild comes of reading age!

Format: Paperback
In "Jodie's Passover Adventure" children can come and explore the Old City of Jerusalem, the foundations for the great walls of the Temple, and the inside of a tunnel with Jodie. Jodie is very interested in archaeology and is looking forward to going on a trip to Hezekiah's Tunnel with her dad. Jodie soon finds out that her cousin Zach will be going on the trip also which adds more adventure to the trip, and to make it even more interesting it even occurs during the Passover season.

Made for ages 5-9 and grades K-3, this book will be delight for children that are interested in history, science, and Israel and will most likely open their minds up to new topics they have never learned about before.

Format: Paperback
Jodie's father was an archaeologist of note and she dreamed of working the digs like he did when she grew up. When she found the afikomen she got a flashlight as a reward and was hoping that "her cousin Zach would help her uncover treasures hidden deep inside the earth." When Zach arrived it didn't seem like she'd have much of a chance to visit with him, much less do any exploring. Her older brothers Shimi and Eli, had their Passover week planned out by suggesting they go skateboarding and biking ... and Jodie was not invited.

Jodie sulked as she rose out of her chair and pointed her finger at the boys and asked, "Hey, when do I get a turn to be with Zach." Shimi poked fun of her saying that there was nothing but mutant monsters in those caves, but Zach grew interested when Jodie talked about Hezekiah's Tunnel. She told him all about how Hezekiah was once the King of Jerusalem and how "He even invited all the rulers of Judea to a Passover seder in Jerusalem." Would Zach want to go to the tunnel with Jodie and if he did would they be able to figure out the "riddle of the middle" as they made their way to the end?

This is an interesting story about Jodie and her adventure into Hezekiah's Tunnel. Hezekiah's Tunnel or the Siloam Tunnel is underneath the City of David in Jerusalem. Children love a bit of mystery and adventure in books and this tale will encourage many to learn more about history of Jerusalem and the tunnel itself. Held during Passover week, the story does not specifically talk about the festival, but does mention things such as the afikomen, matzah, and Hezekiah who called upon the people of Jerusalem to keep Passover. This is a fun book that would be an excellent addition to any religious library for the young reader.
