With An Outstretched Arm:
A memor of love and loss, family and faith

B. J. Yudelson

Advance Praise:

“Written with honesty, intelligence, and grace, With an Outstretched Arm will break your heart and put it back together again. B.J. Yudelson’s writing captivates and enlightens, but most of all, resonates. A story of love and loss, family and faith, this memoir is a story for us all.”
– Sonja Livingston, author, Ghostbread

“B.J. Yudelson has written a sensitive, heartfelt, deeply engaging account of her spiritual journey and family life. Honest, open, and very real as she describes tragedy, she comes through with her love for her life and her family intact. I was gripped throughout.”
– Stephanie Wellen Levine, author, Mystics, Mavericks, and Merrymakers: An intimate journey among Hasidic girls

"B.J. Yudelson's Outstretched Arm smites and embraces. An extraordinary writer faces the joys and tragedies and existential questions of her life without flinching and has produced one of the most honest and moving memoirs one could read. It is not only the story of a search for Jewish identity and meaning on the broadest of American landscapes; it is a fearless voyage of self exploration – searching for whatever meaning and solace we can take from our suffering and our joy."
Rabbi Shmuel Klitsner, author, Wrestling Jacob: Deception, Identity and Freudian Slips in Genesis

“Original, interesting, compelling, and important for the light it sheds on this slice in the history of American Judaism and American religion ”
– Zachary Braiterman, professor of Jewish studies, Syracuse University

“With An Outstretched Arm is the compelling story of one woman’s journey through life. B. J. Yudelson’s memoir reminds us that the One who created us will see us through the complexities of this journey and that often our family of faith becomes the living reality of the grace, love, and support of the One.”
– Ron Domina, senior pastor, Bethel Christian Fellowship, Rochester, N.Y.
