About the Author

Shifra Malka is fascinated with the inner spaces humans inhabit. As the producer and host of a weekly radio program on social and educational issues that aired live in the Mid-Atlantic region, Shifra was known for eliciting hard, honest responses from her interviewees when posing the questions that others were too hesitant to ask. Underlying these conversations was one pressing question Shifra always wanted to answer: What makes our lives matter? Daring to step right into the heart of life's complexities, her search for answers to this question is refreshingly approachable and impactful. Shifra is an award-winning writing and communications consultant based in Baltimore, Maryland.


"In Dare to Matter, Ms. Malka has written a compelling and courageous book about one of life's most important topics. Namely, that we are all created to matter. As we find ourselves in a world awash in people who have inadvertently fallen prey to the lie that they are somehow too insignificant or inadequate to assert a presence that matters, the author beautifully compels her readers to rethink their circumstance and rediscover for themselves how we all possess personal power to lead our lives in meaningful and miraculous ways. I urge you to read this important, very well-written book. It is, in a word, superb." --Brigadier General John E. Michel, author, Executive Director of Skyworks Global
"It is rare that I see the impact of my own work in such a clear and complete way. I listened to you read your cover copy which sent chills through me. I was struck by the brilliance of your understanding about what mattering is and why it is integral to accessing and maximizing our highest creative selves. There are literally endless numbers of people who need to hear that they matter. With your personal voice, you will undoubtedly broadcast the meaning of mattering in a singularly potent manner." --Barbara Sher, NY Times best-selling author
"Shifra has a commanding and distinctive writing style. Her writing is descriptive, profound and tantamount to a novelist. In all her endeavors, Mrs. Malka is a personable, skilled professional and a team player." --Rabbi Joseph Friedman, attorney, author and Director of The Jewish Learning Exchange, Olney, MD (a philanthropic Jewish organization focused on educational and social initiatives)
