Queen of the Jews



Judy Petsonk visited my temple, Congregation B'nai Israel in Boca Raton, to talk about her historical novel, Queen of the Jews. It's the story of Queen Shalom-Zion, a descendent of the Maccabees, who was a real person. Along with her well-received talk for the temple, I got to sit down with Judy for a one-on-one. Enjoy!
