March 25, 2018

Review by Rabbi Ari Enkin • Torah Book Review 

“A modern-orthodox woman’s journey to re-trace the steps of the Exodus.  Loaded with pictures, personal stories, and sprinkled with divrei Torah. One of the most fascinating and captivating reads I have ever gotten my hands on. Highly Recommended. I hope I find the time to read every page.”
