At our shul's Family Service, we arrived and saw these wonderful new children's siddurim sitting on all the chairs. I looked at the picture on cover and felt this overwhelming sense of familiarity, of connection, of home, and then saw Joani's name!!! I was so thrilled to see her work and to share it with Aaron, and to tell the rabbi (who loves the siddur) that Joani is my friend. But what I felt more than anything, sitting there in services with my son in Brooklyn, looking at your artwork, was a sense of your presence, of my history, of our friendship, reaching all the way to my life in this moment and infusing every Shabbat!
