RABBI SANDY EISENBERG SASSO SPEAKS ABOUT HER NEW BOOK CAIN AND ABEL: FINDING THE FRUITS OF PEACE
Rabbi Sandy Eisenberg Sasso is an award-winning author of books for children of all faiths and backgrounds. She has been rabbi of Congregation Beth- El Zedeck in Indianapolis since 1977.
Sasso was the second women to be ordained a rabbi (in 1974) and the first women rabbi to become a mother. She and her husband, Dennis, were the first rabbinical couple to jointly lead a congregation.
Rabbi Sasso has published ten books, including: But God Remembered and A Prayer for the Earth. She writes a weekly column for the Indianapolis Star on religious and spirituality issues. Her new book Cain and Abel: Finding the Fruits of Peace was published last fall. I spoke with Sasso while she was visiting Toronto recently for an event celebrating "Thirty Years of Women as Rabbis."
