"Hebrew language is holy, its very letters sacred. Yet on Joe Lowin's hands, we see that it is also exuberant, full of rich treasures, fresh as well as ancient, funny as well as profound."- Blu Greenberg
"This brilliant and captivating study of Hebrew roots reads like a series of tales that will enrich the knowledge of students and teachers alike." - Elie Wiesel
