In Search of Yesterday is a distillation of the author's writings about the Holocaust / Shoah over the span of the last several years in three distinct areas: family stories, the quest for meaning in seemingly inexplicable events, and rethinking and reinterpreting biblical texts in light of the Holocaust / Shoah.
