Ruchama King Feuerman lived and taught Torah in Israel for ten years. She is also a novelist and writing coach. Much of Ruchama's fiction is set in Jerusalem, a place, she finds, where outrageous stories are handed to you, and then you have to tone them down to make them believable. Her latest novel, "In the Courtyard of the Kabbalist" received rave reviews from the Boston Globe, the Jerusalem Post, the Dallas Morning News, and the Wall Street Journal which included it in its list of best novels of the year. Ruchama and her husband, psychotherapist and writer Yisrael Feuerman, co-write a weekly column in Ami Magazine, and are raising a family in Passaic, New Jersey.
