I started ASOS in 2001 and continued through IM and Work of Return. During my time in the school a classmate and I had an idea to start a publishing company. She dropped out but I launched Tiferet Journal. As Jason said, my real goal was to embody tiferet myself and that is a continuing process. I also have published a novel and collection of short stories and see writing as my spiritual calling. You can see more about Tiferet Journal at www.tiferetjournal.com and my books at www.donnabaierstein.com. I am happy to connect with others here though may be somewhat sporadic with my postings!
