In her new book "Comfort Ye My People: The Church's Mandate toward Israel and the Jewish People" (published by WestBow Press) Dr. Martha J. Smith documents the increase of anti-Semitic attacks in Europe. Also examined are the Jewish roots of Christianity and the Church's schism from these roots. Smith traces the history of Christian persecution of the Jewish people from the time of the Church's assimilation into the Roman Empire as the state religion. Also examined are Martin Luther's invectives against the Jewish people, which paved the way for Hitler's "Aryanized" Lutheran Church. Under the leadership of Bishop Ludwig Mueller, an ardent follower of Hitler, the Lutheran Evangelical Church not only condoned the abuse and genocide of Germany's Jews but was in complicity.

In August, 2009 I was greeted by incredibly enthusiastic students on 65th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam. The Juilliard School: this was my new home and although my mom and sisters were overwhelmed by the welcoming committee, they knew I'd fit right in. Orientation lasted one week in which I met students from all over the world, set up my dorm room, and got use to downsizing from my two-bedroom apartment in Las Vegas. The school held several seminars to orient us, and organized outings to help us get our bearings in the city while having some fun before the Juilliard schedule took over our lives!

Exceptionally crafted, Sacramento Theatre Company's world premiere of "A Little Princess" is full of imagination and excitement. A well-paced book by William J Brooke follows the story of young Sara Crewe's dealings with life's troubles. From "supposing" optimism to acceptance and pragmatism, the psychological drama of the adaptation reads down-to-earth and true, especially as Sara's journey contrasts with schoolmistress Miss Minchin's aversion to happy endings. And it's matched by exquisite music written by Eric Rockwell.
