Ashland authors to visit Bend

Published Jun 29, 2014 at 12:06AM

Ashland authors David Zaslow and Debra Gordon Zaslow will present their recently published books at 7 p.m. July 8 at the First United Methodist Church, 680 N.W. Bond St., in Bend.

Rabbi David Zaslow is the author of “Jesus: First-Century Rabbi,” and Debra Gordon Zaslow is the author of “Bringing Bubbe Home, A memoir of Letting Go through Love and Death.”

In “Bringing Bubbe Home,” Debra Gordon Zaslow writes about the life-changing experience of bringing her 103 year-old grandmother into her home during her final months of life. The narrative of their time together in Bubbe’s last months is mingled with scenes from the past that reveal how her grandmother’s stories of abuse, tenacity and survival have played out through the generations of women in the family.

“Jesus: First-Century Rabbi” takes a fresh look at the historical Jesus and the Jewish roots of Christianity while challenging both Jews and Christians to re-examine their understanding of Jesus’ firm commitment to his Jewish faith.
