News about the EJMMM

I received a nice online review for the EJMMM (in Wales, no less!):

This book is a veritable treasure trove of information. I had been looking forward to it since I saw it first advertised, and I was not disappointed. Within its pages you will find a comprehensive encyclopaedia of thousands of entries of everything from Aaron to Zombies! This book really is a delight and immensely useful, if you are interested in Jewish folklore, magical practices, beliefs, Kabbalah, and the fantastic and miraculous. The author draws from a huge range of source material, including Jewish Scriptures, the Talmud, the Midrash, Kabbalistic texts and others. The book also includes a detailed bibliography, so essential in encyclopaedic works, and useful appendices making the book easier to use for reference. All in all a real gem of a book, thoroughly recommended. Go and buy it!

Mr. Rankine has a fascinating website of his own devoted to contemporary Paganism entitled Avalonia. Follow this link to his site - http://www.avalonia.co.uk/books/review_books/february_2007.htm

There is also nice article on my speaking at a bookstore appeared in the UNT Daily:

Rabbi (teacher),

Can you please point us in the direction of some resources we can use to illuminate the Jewish Bible? Your posts indicate the esoteric meaning of the scriptures and we would like to learn how to interpret them in this light.
