About the Author

Rabbi Bruce Forman earned his PhD in Counseling Psychology from Duke University in 1978, and has worked in both academia and independent professional practice. Following a religious epiphany at age 50, he pursued spiritual education opportunities and was ordained as a rabbi in 2003. With a passion for stories, Rabbi Bruce later received ordination as a maggid, a traditional Jewish teacher and storyteller, from renowned maggid Yitzhak Buxbaum. Rabbi Bruce Forman has published dozens of scientific and professional articles and book chapters in psychology.Rabbi Bruce resides in South Florida, where he continues to practice psychotherapy and hypnosis. Rabbi Bruce enjoys serving the Jewish community by officiating at weddings, baby namings, bar mitzvahs, funerals, or other life cycle events. With his zeal for travel, Rabbi Bruce also serves as rabbi-at-sea on cruise ships.

Shoshannah Brombacher-Miller (Amsterdam 1959) is an academic, visual artist, author and maggidah (ordained Jewish preacher, story teller and spiritual guide). She studied Ancient Middle Eastern Linguistics, Culture and Codicology at Leyden University (Holland), and received a PhD in medieval Sephardic Hebrew poetry of the Portuguese-Jewish Community of Amsterdam. She taught and researched at the Free University of Berlin and in Jerusalem and currently lives in Brooklyn with her family. She never smoked, but is convinced that a spiritual approach helps overcome many manifestations of the yetzer hara, of which smoking is just one. Therefore, this book is interesting for smokers and non-smokers alike. Brombacher authored several academic and artistic books and illustrated even more. Her art is internationally recognized and delves deeply into Jewish lore and legends.
