Today, I sat in on my first group discussion of the Study of the Torah. It was an exciting time for me, coming to terms with another dimension of my heritage. Yes, I am so excited that I am Jewish.

I never would have thought it in a million years. As a matter of fact, I denied it and was utterly shocked. I made myself go to the Torah Study, it was quite inclusive and informative.

\”The best quote of the day was that they that depise me shall be lightly esteemed (Pirke Avot 4:1). \” I really liked the quote because sometimes I can go places and feel very anti-semitic. Even before, I knew what that meant, I knew that I was a they instead of we. I knew that I was hated and despised the rejected block. Not to say that since I have another dimension on my heritage trail that I am going to feel really loved and all of my problems are going to go away. No they are not. I am not going to get richer and nothing is going to change for me. I don\’t know if I will get caught in class or established society or not. I do know that SANDERS\’ is a very political name.

I did not want to brag, but my direct ancestor is Aaron the Levite. That means that I am just as Jewish as the next person. I felt guilt and sadness because I did feel like I was coming to terms with a part of me that was missing, and I did feel a little wholer. I also felt that I had validated all my last few years of searching and sitting on projects and bumping into brick walls. Yet there must be millions of Gaelic and African Americans that have something in common with me, and so that means that the way we do business around here is going to be different and for those congregations that are all conclusive that will make it better for the world to go around.

Also we did a study that said, \”if gentiles said to a group of people, \’Give us one of you and we shall kim, and if not we shall kill you all\’ — let them all be killed and not hand over a single soul of Israel. At that moment, I was so shocked. I did not know what to say, I blurted out love. I went back to Deuteronomy One, when God said that Israel\’s burdens is too heavy for him.

In closing there are some people out here who have strange ethics and they will think that you can confirm to their wishes and desires. To me life and blood and time is sacred, family is everything. I feel that everyone is valued and no one should be the least or the most when it comes to life. True in the case of Sheba son of Birchri, his ethic is that they should hand him over and not permit all of them to be killed (Genesis 9:10). But you have to ask what in the hell, would you expect me to do a crazy thing like that, as I am fueled by emotions and love and anger and revenge etc. So far I have been to two synagogues and the congregations are so delightful and curious.

Looking for that next good book…then, now is the time to find out about the latest page turner from the Amazon. com best selling author of \”Stories I Wouldn\’t Tell Nobody But God,\” Rasheed Clark, it\’s called \”Cold Summer Afternoon!\”

Love. Infidelity. Deception. Abuse. Lies. Shameful secrets. Hurt. Mistrust. For one of four women, it���s enough to drive her to commit murder���

April��� Trapped in a loveless marriage to a less than loving, abusive husband, she was alone until she meets Brian Robinson, who just lost the love of his life. Will she risk her marriage and make the ultimate sacrifice to find love again?

Renee��� She made the transition from being the ���other woman��� to being one man���s wife, but at what cost? She soon discovers what goes around truly does come around.

Blue��� She must discover the hard way that you can���t run from your past or yourself, especially when a man is involved? What will she do when she comes face to face with the man she promised to love forever?

Loretta���After destroying her own marriage through her own lies, infidelity and insecurities, she now holds the fate of another marriage in her hands. Wait until the man���s wife finds out���

Brace yourself for a story you won���t soon forget. Filled with more twists and turns than a rollercoaster, Cold Summer Afternoon is the book everybody will be talking about right up to its surprising ending���

Here���s An Excerpt Of The Most Highly Anticipated Book Ever���

An Angry Woman Says���

I sat in the dark of my apartment for over an hour. The only light came from the street lamp outside my apartment building.

I looked around trying to figure out the number of times I wanted to burn this place down to the ground just like Left Eye tried to do to Andre Rison���s place. Okay, maybe that was an accident. I was just that upset.

I thought about the times I wanted to poison his food and watch him gasp for his last breath. I would then just finish my untouched dinner and then plan his funeral. I wanted him to suffer as much as possible. Then, I���d be happy. Maybe.

I picked up my drink and swirled the ice around in the glass and then ran my hand across the gun. It was lying on the cushion of the couch next to me. I wanted to make sure it was still there. It felt cool to my touch.

Touching it, I thought about all of the arguments, the fights, the lies and the threats that came down to this one moment. I wanted him to die. In my mind, I already died several times inside. I wanted him to hurt just as much as I do now.

For far too long, I put up with his brand of drama like some people put up with a headache. The only difference is that now payback is a bitch.

I didn���t plan on killing him at first, but right now, I didn���t have the strength to live with what he has done. At least what he did to me, I didn���t even want to think about it. My blood ran cold when I did.

Now, sitting here, I realized he could take everything from me. I realized that my happily ever after fairytale was all built on a lie. I looked around again and had to ask myself what would drive a woman to murder?

How did I let it get to this point? I should have left. I should have been strong enough to walk away. It doesn���t matter. I know how I planned to end it. I am going to finish it my way.

I put my drink down on the coffee table and ran my hand across the
gun again. It was still there. Where was he? I took a deep breath and waited. Hold on. Wait. You hear that? I heard the familiar jingle of the keys to the front door. He���s home.

I picked up the gun, stood up and aimed it at the door. I wasn���t sure if he would turn on the lights. I prayed he wouldn���t. My hands started to shake.

I felt my palms grow damp under the weight of the gun. There were six bullets in the gun and every one of them belonged to him.

Slowly, the door opened. I heard a voice. Then, a brighter light washed over the room overtaking the light from the street lights outside.

I closed my eyes and pulled the trigger. Boom. Boom. Boom. Boom. Boom. Five shots. I didn���t want to open my eyes until the gun was empty and hopefully, he was dead���

Finish the story and find out what kind of secrets would drive a woman to commit murder in Rasheed Clark\’s Cold Summer Afternoon…and discover for yourself what has been keeping thousands readers up at night trying to finish. This is the one book you won���t be able to put down and won\’t soon forget���

Thousands Of Readers Can\’t Be Wrong About This One… Don���t Take Our Word For It Here Is What Reviewers And Readers Are Saying About Rasheed Clark and his novels���

\”I felt so many different emotions while reading the book…I cried, I laughed, I got angry and that is what make this book so good…\” – F. Traynham

\”A fresh voice in African American fiction, this book is the one book every woman should own a copy of������ ��� Barnes and Noble Review.
