A heady, beautifully written play ... a lovely balance between poetry and reality, bringing to life a diverse cast of characters in a challenging time period. Claire Rudy Foster, ForeWord

This powerful play recreates in moving drama the (anti-Nazi) struggles and the desperate attempt of good people to remain moral in the most immoral of societies. Powerful, poignant and penetrating .... Michael Berenbaum, Professor of Jewish Studies

If you like leaving a play feeling not only entertained but also ennobled and elevated, then Silence Not, A Love Story is warmly recommended. Midnight East, Jerusalem

"Silence Not, A Love Story" premiered in Jerusalem, Israel, and is published by Gihon River Press.  Book of the Year Finalist, Fore Word Awards.
