Most Recent Book Title: “A Story of Survival: The Jewish Community in the Christmas City of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania”
Book Description: This unpublished manuscript is an oral history of the Jewish community of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. One day while driving through Bethlehem, I noticed a building at Lehigh University that had on its facade what appeared to be the tablets of the Ten Commandments. There was a story there and I’ve spent the past four years finding the answer. This has involved doing field and archival research that at first was simply a way of connecting with the people I met in my adopted hometown. It became “A Story of Survival: The Jewish Community in the Christmas City of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania,” currently unpublished.

The project is groundbreaking because it combines oral history with exploring the links between people, both individual and institutional. Research at the Library of Congress reveals that there are oral histories and there are explorations of these links, but nowhere are they combined.

The Jewish community in this city of 75,000 — once home to Bethlehem Steel — has always been small but while “the Steel” shut down, an economic blow to the community at large, the Bethlehem Jewish community quietly adapted and survives.

This group’s survival is an example of how people of all backgrounds can cope with societal change in their communities while maintaining their identity.

Book Description: Why I Wrote This Book and The Painful Truth That Comes with It

It's all about new techniques -- simplifying old techniques, and consolidating steps. Making things go faster, but not worse.

-Martha Stewart

There are many women in the world that believe it is unprogressive, some going as far to say that it’s downright insensitive to say that women belong in the home, but that isn’t what I’m saying at all. I’m simply saying that in most cases for women, there is a desire to not just maintain the home, but watch after the children. Whether it be maternal instinct or social conditioning is a debate for another day, but it’s something that is definitely ingrained in the hearts and minds of women everywhere. The painful truth of feminism is that women in most cases at least have the ambition toward being a mother and an astute wife.

With that said, there are a variety of reasons why a woman may want to be a good homemaker. A present wife and/or mother is something that is not only important to have as a component to a family, but is essentially the heart of the family, or metaphorical glue. It holds the family together and brings in the nurturing love that men seem to lack, and as a consequence, need so much. Men are a lot like babies for their entire lives really, constantly in need of nurturing and attention, and the duty of the woman throughout most societies is to be the source of this nurturing, the beacon of light that instills love wherever it goes. If viewed as a duty, it is possible to be a bad wife, especially if you have the desire to be a good wife. If you don’t have the desire to be a good wife then this book probably isn’t for you – you’d be more interested in some sort of specific topic or some other purpose you’ve invented for yourself, but for the rest of womankind, I welcome you.

This book is broken up in sections of the house. For example, chapter 3 talks about how to maintain the kitchen while chapter 4 explores the fascinating intricacies of keeping a bathroom sparkling, and so on and so forth. Life is a lot like a house, with various rooms and various problems. As a wife, you will run into more problems than keeping the house clean, but it’s important to get the basics down so that you can give your full attention to the real problems at hand. Housekeeping, after all, is just one of the many rooms in a wife’s life, but that’s exactly why I wrote this book – to substantiate the importance of keeping the home clean and how it serves as a foundation for the rest of a wife’s work. Love cannot spread if it isn’t in the atmosphere and the best and clearest way to show that you love your husband as well as your family and his family is to keep your house looking clean. I’m not talking, pick-up-the-socks clean. I mean the glossy magazine cover of Good Housekeeping clean.

This book will focus on maintaining each room of the house and as a consequence, how to maintain one’s marriage. When I say maintain each room, I essentially mean that this book will explore how to keep tricky sections of the house clean as well as how to make it presentable. Appearance after all are for the sake of, well, appearances. It’s always important to gauge the situation before you get started – what rooms need cleaning first? What is this person likely to scrutinize over? It’s also important to have emergency plans for whenever someone really important comes over. For example, part of being married is that you should expect surprise drop-ins not only from your own family but your in-laws as well. This means that you should always keep certain places clean, and the best way to do this is to have a day-to-day routine. With the help of this book, you can get yourself on the track to being a better wife and making cleaning as easy as breathing.

They say that men are the ones that are in charge of relationships as well as the household, but it’s important to remember that women are just as important because of what they do in the home. If there were no women, there would be no marriage, and if there were no women, there would certainly be dirty houses littered all over the world. Luckily this book can rescue your home from being one of the many second-rate motels across the world and into a one of a kind beauty where love is born.
