Oy! Only Six? Why Not More? Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish Life

If I were in Washington this evening, I’d try to get over to Sixth & I Historic Synagogue for a program featuring a few of the contributors to Oy! Only Six? Why Not More? Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish Life. This new book contains “360 stories of faith and family, duty and identity, celebration and tsuris that will inform, delight and inspire—six words at a time.”

And I’ve recently learned that my own six-word memoir is among them.

For some background on the project, check out editor Larry Smith’s explanation. And then go ahead and peruse the free preview.

I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of my contributor’s copy!

UPDATE: It arrived! And I love it! And I’ve learned even more about the book from its coverage on The Forward‘s Arty Semite blog.

  1. I never thought about this before I read your post but the Shema is a six word statement. Count it. Isn’t that something. (excluding the Boruch Shem)

  2. I thought this was such an interesting project. Congrats on being included!

    • Sheryl, it’s a really neat little book. And thank you–I am thrilled to be part of it (published on page 18, no less!).
