- Jewish Approach to Yoga
"A superb contribution to the field of pregnancy, especially geared to the Jewish reader. I recommend it highly for its completeness. The material on pre-natal diagnosis is potentially very important to Ashkenazi Jews. I also recommend this book because of the very well-chosen prayers."
--Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer, author (with Jonathan Marks) of Heavenly Sex: Sex in the Jewish Tradition
"Informed by good science, Jewish insight and the wisdom of the body as expressed through yoga ... a rich collection of information, inspiration and support for expectant parents."
