Dear Hasafran friends,

After 18 years building this library from the day the JCC of Greater 
New Haven opened its doors, I am sad to say that I have been laid off 
due to lack of funds for my position.  My last day will be Friday, 
November 18.  I am sad for myself, and I am sad for our community 
that our library will no longer have a librarian -- don't really know 
what the future will hold for our wonderful collection.  I will miss 
all of you and all that I have learned from you.  I couldn't have 
succeeded at establishing this Jewish library for Greater New Haven 
without the support of AJL and Hasafran.

The good news is that I will devote the coming months to my fiction 
writing, starting with a 4-week residency at the Vermont Studio 
Center.  I have achieved some success as a short story writer 
(including winning the Lilith short story contest and placing third 
in the Moment contest a few years back), and I am now writing a novel 
with Jewish content.  So... look for me on the Jewish book tour some day!

Meanwhile, I can be reached here until Friday and also at home at .

Thanks again.
