What a lovely evening we had last night speaking to the B’nai B’rith Educators Unit about the book 94 Maidens and our mission to promote Holocaust education! Thank you for the delicious dinner and the beautiful Hatikvah Circle of Hope Youth Services Award! It was a pleasure meeting all of you and we hope that you’ll love reading 94 Maidens so much that you’ll use it in your classrooms and recommend it to your colleagues for use in curriculum as well!
See lots more pics at and please give us a like at our 94 Maidens Facebook page!
“Hello Mrs. Fink-Whitman,
I just wanted to thank you for coming to my school to speak about your book and life last Friday. 94 Maidens was truly inspiring to read, and really gave me a new perspective on the Holocaust and even life itself. I haven’t read a book that was that powerful and meaningful in a very long time. Thank you for sharing your story in such an amazing and personal way. It really made an impact on my life.”
This is why the book was written and this is why we’ll never stop championing mandated Holocaust education.
This is why we do it. Our hearts are completely full.
94 Maidens was proud to participate in Cardinal O’Hara High School’s “Adopt a Book” program! Students chose to read 94 Maidens during their summer break and author Rhonda Fink-Whitman appeared today to discuss the book with the students. The reception was awesome! The students said that they found the book to be very meaningful and that they related to the story and the characters in many ways. Plus, they now know more about the Holocaust than they did before. Rhonda says that makes her soooo happy because that’s exactly why she wrote it!! Many thanks to Cardinal O’Hara and Gravy Wars author, Lorraine Ranalli for the kind invitation to participate!!

In case you missed it, here is the very fine article about 94 Maidens in this month’s Milestones Newspaper! (Many thanks to ace reporter Barbara Sherf!)
Since the interview, CT mandated Holocaust education too, bringing the actual number of mandated states to 10! But not for long! Great things are happening OUT WEST for 2019! Check back with us on our facebook page and here at www.94maidens.com for updates!
Happy reading! Happy Friday! Shabbat shalom! Prayers for the folks and areas being impacted by Hurricane Florence! Good weekend to all!
L’shana tova to all of our readers, educators, advocates, five-star reviewers, and friends from #94Maidens author Rhonda Fink-Whitman and her Mutti (“the kid on the cover” as she likes to call herself.) Wishing you and yours a healthy, happy, safe, sweet, prosperous, and successful New Year!
All good things in 5779! ❤️
