Yesterday’s Child was first published in 1992 and reprinted in Hard Cover in 2002 by CIS Publishers. The book was listed for many years as a bestseller in the Jewish Community.

This was a book which had to be written, because it highlighted a problem and gave across an urgent message.
The book is still listed as a best seller but, even though thousands of copies were sold, it has become rare and extremely difficult to obtain. At the same time the message is still highly relevant and urgent.
I have therefore self – published the book again.
It is a book which cannot be allowed to go out of print.

Both paperback and e-book editions are available on and
