While she still feels the sadness of her mother’s death, she also recognizes all she gained from her brief time with her mother in her life.

Dina runs Baker’s Dozen Press® and has also written and published Creative License: Summer Sermons on Torah and Living in Community. She and her husband Brad are empty-nesters living in suburban Philadelphia with their cat, Leo.
