Excerpt from Kehilla Magazine

When New Jersey native Sandra Armstrong began writing her “how to” marketing book for Conservative synagogues, little did she dream she would be finishing it in Hawaii. And yet, what Sandra now calls “Jewish Paradise,” turned out to be the perfect tropical setting for the book’s completion.
