American Ghost: The True Story of a Family's Haunted Past
by Hannah nordhaus

"Hannah Nordhaus discovers that her great-great grandmother Julia is being seen in the present day as a sad-eyed ghost in a hotel that had been the family home in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Trying to learn more about Julia's life, she interviews relatives, then turns to diaries, historical records, newspaper archives, psychics, mediums, and ghost hunters. The result is a spirited memoir of one of the earliest Jewish pioneer families in the American West."
-- Sydelle Shamah, JBC Website

Farewell, Aleppo: My Father, My People, and Their Long Journey Home
by Claudette E. Sutton

"Farewell, Aleppo: My Father, My People, and Their Long Journey Home, by Claudette E. Sutton, is a book relevant to today’s headlines where Syrians are persecuted for their religious beliefs. This is a story of a not too distant past when all religions lived and worked together, ignoring their differences. But it is also the story of how times changed and once again Syrian Jews faced persecution resulting in the disappearance of a two thousand year old Jewish community that once thrived in Syria." -- Elise Cooper
