Genizah Update #30 - Audiobook Available

Genizah Update #30
Audiobook Available!

August 12, 2011

Hello Everybody,

It’s been many months since my last Genizah missive, but I did want to let you know that…


…The audio version of my book, Sacred Treasure: The Cairo Genizah is now available for download – 8 hours and 21 minutes of sheer Genizah joy!

You can purchase it from Amazon,, and soon (I am told), iTunes as well. Here are the links:


As of now, it’s most affordable on Amazon, but I think there might be a way to get it for free if you get a 30-day trial with

I’ll add that I had a lot of fun making the recording. For three days over the course of two weeks, I drove to Snohomish WA and sat in before a microphone in Chris Hanzsek’s sound studio to read the book. Then, Chris got to work and made the recording shine.

(For someone who talks like I do, getting sound-edited is a real treat. I went to years and years of speech therapy when I was younger, but in the end, it turns out that all I needed was Chris – he made me perfectly fluent!)

Speaking Engagements

Even though the book has been out for some time now, I am still actively working to promote it. In November alone I am currently booked for appearances in San Diego, Houston, Minneapolis, and St. Paul. If you know of a group that would be interested in having me speak, please feel free to put us in contact with one another.

Barnes & Noble

Finally, just this minute I received word that Barnes & Noble just purchased a couple hundred copies of my book for sales around the country. They should be on the shelves by next month, making the “dead-trees” version more readily available to interested readers everywhere (or everywhere where there’s a B&N that carries it, at least.

Thanks as always for your ongoing support, and best wishes for a terrific end-of-summer.

  1. Thanks for the wonderful book. I feel proud that you wrote about the Contributions of the Jews of the Middle East to Judaism as my native country is Egypt. But we Middle Eastern Jews prefer to be called Jews who lived in Arab countries than “Arab Jews”, or be called “The Levant Jews”.
    Thanks again, Regards
