Stealing Home: Israel Bound and Rebound

By Haim Chertok | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Most of Stealing Home first appeared as separate articles in various journals. Quite apart from the vagaries of the Israeli postal system, it always seemed to me a small miracle when weeks or sometimes months after submission would arrive at my small Negev home either an acceptance or the returned manuscript, the latter usually accompanied by words of thoughtful response. Naturally, I preferred the acceptances, but without the check and flow of professional criticism, I would not have continued and this book would not have been. I wish to acknowledge my debt to all those editors at the other end of the post who almost unfailingly have been generous with their advice and measured praise.

My particular thanks to Alex Berlyne, Joel Carmichael, Mitchell Cohen, Helen Davis, Leonard Fein, J. J. Goldberg, Dr. Robert Gordis, Amnon Hadary, Aron Hirt-Manheimer, Marion Magid, Mordecai Newman, Reginald T. Roberts, Hanan Sher, Zelda Shluker, Marc Silver, Alan M. Tigay, Yehudit Wade, Dr. Ruth B. Waxman, Asher Weill, Joy Weinberg, and Trude Weiss-Rosmarin.

In somewhat different versions, then, you may have already encountered portions of Stealing Home in Commentary, Forum, Growing Without Schooling, Hadassah, Israel Scene, Jewish Frontier, The Jerusalem Post , Manasseh, Midstream, Moment, and Sh'ma.

I must reserve my most profound appreciation for two persons whose help has been powerfully sustaining: George Fletcher at Fordham University Press with whom it has been a delight to work, and my wife, Marcia, who has lived it all twice.
