Debra Darvick understands the importance of celebrating our faith at home. Her inspiring and sometimes funny columns on finding inspiration in daily life have appeared in Good Housekeeping, Newsweek and Real Simple as well as some of the nation’s top Jewish publications: Forward, Moment, Hadassah and Reform Judaism magazine.
Strengthening the Jewish Community
Debra proves the value of her own advice through her active involvement with Jewish education and other family-related institutions within the Jewish community. Her children’s picture book—I Love Jewish Faces—celebrates Jewish diversity. ReadTheSpirit Books now publishes Debra’s signature title, This Jewish Life: Stories of Discovery, Connection and Joy. The one-volume collection of stories from Jewish men and women connects readers, season by season, with daily life in Jewish homes. This Jewish Life is recommended for libraries and small groups as a compelling introduction to Jewish culture. It also was selected as part of a short list of recommended books on Judaism for inclusion in cross-cultural libraries.
As a wife and mother—as well as an award-winning writer—Debra has become a popular source of creative ideas for lighting up your family life, while maintaining your religious traditions. She regularly freelances for national magazines, and also considers requests for public appearances and media interviews, time permitting in her busy schedule. COMING SOON is her next book on the challenges of raising teens with religious values in today’s overwhelmingly secular culture. That book has the working title Walking by the Way, Universal Wisdom from a Real Jewish Mother.
