“Hätte ich das nur alles vorher gewusst, wäre meine Flugausbildung ganz anders verlaufen”, so dachte ich oft im Nachhinein.  Warum findet sich keine Beratung zu dem Thema?  Jetzt weiß ich es  besser: Die Komplexität und der Arbeitsaufwand dafür sind unglaublich hoch.

“Aber ich habe die Aufgabe in Angriff genommen diesen Ratgeber zu schreiben, und es hat dann auch wirklich Freude gemacht.

  Um den Lesern einen objektiven Leitfaden an die Hand zu geben, wurden natürlich auch die weniger positiven Seiten dieses “Traum-Berufes” detailliert aufgezeigt.”

Glimpse Into Israels Prisons


Rabbi Fishel Jacobs offers his readers a glimpse into the world of the Israeli prison system.  Through a series of vignettes, Jacobs weaves the tales of prisoners and prison life using compelling description and moving dialogue.  

His conversations with inmates and their lives told in their own words offer a
truly poignant reminder that we are all just one decision away from disaster.


Coffee Melts Bars: My Israeli Prison Career by Fishel Jacobs 
He presents an unswervingly honest look at life behind bars and his
struggle to shine love in some of the darkest, most desperate places.
Stories of redemption and faith permeate this work, readers are left with
an unmistakable sense of hope.



About the Author:
Rabbi Fishel Jacobs: “I was a Major in the Israel Prison Service and the only American chaplain in the Israeli penal system.  For thirteen years, in a little office located directly below the room where Nazi war criminal Adolph Eichmann was hung, I tended to countless men and women who were both physically and spiritually broken.  I know that when most people hear the word “prison,” they think of the loss of rights, the harsh conditions, the abuse.  But for me it was all about the encouragement, the hope, the growth.”
Karate Champion, talmudic scholar, prison chaplain, lieutenant in an Israel Army combat engineering unit on active duty during the Gulf War, and Tel Aviv University campus chaplain for nearly 20 years. You can imagine that this man is truly… blessed and has a lot to tell.

Teeming with terrorists, murderers, rioters, revolutionaries, madmen and psychopaths, maximum-security prisons like Rabbi Jacobs witnessed would be the last place you’d expect to find ANY ray of HOPE in the human heart.  
And Rabbi Jacobs now tells all the best stories – firsthand, as only he can – about the triumph of the human spirit over the darkest manifestations of man’s depravity.


His books are certainly available as iBooks at Apple

Find refuge…

From Reviewers:
“A delicious, rich, fascinating melange of descriptive natural history, science, lore and romance by an intellectual who struggles with ‘whither Mother Earth?’.  Not a gulpable book – should be savored in sips.”

“He describes beautifully his passion for his environment with facts and humor! A thoroughly enjoyable read!”


Author’s Bio

Westwood Lake Chronicles is one of eight books by Lawrence Winkler, an ancient physician and a traveler, a phenomenologist, a mushroom forager, and an amateur naturalist.  As a young man, he hitchhiked around the world, for five trans-formative years.

Lawrence Winkler’s middle age is morphing from medicine to manuscript. He has a passion for habitat protection, including the (hopefully) final repairs on a leaky roof. Westwood Lake Chronicles was his first book.
He lives on Vancouver Island with Robyn and Shiva, tending their garden and vineyard, and dreams.

Author Cleveland McLeish About His Book:

“Most Christians do not know who they are in Christ. They cannot begin to comprehend what Jesus did for us on the Cross and through His resurrection. Because of this, we live as servants and not as sons of God. This mindset has had serious repercussions for the body of Christ. The Kingdom of God has not been fully realized or experienced, even in communities with a large population of Christians.
We live below our potential and God-given status, limiting our experience of God’s manifested glory and the supernatural.

We read the Bible, but we miss the revelation. Our positions in Christ are many and varied.

Cleveland O. McLeish is an Author, Entrepreneur, Playwright, Screenwriter, Ghostwriter and a Teacher. He studied Creative Writing at the University of the West Indies, Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts, Gotham Writers Workshop, Christian Writers Guild and The Writers Bureau.
Presently, he holds a Diploma in Urban Ministry and is pursuing his Masters of Arts in Religion with the Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. He serves as Youth Director and Lay-Minister in the Church of God of Prophecy in Jamaica, along with his wife Nordia.
