I never thought I’d get married, for the simple reason that I never thought I would ever meet someone who would love me just for who I am, faults and all. And then I met Renee Shulman…
Renee and I met one afternoon at Queens College through the Hillel group on campus. I was studying geology and had just returned from a field trip.

So here I am running for my telephone as its ringing interrupts me for the fourth time. Hello, this is Bruce, can I help you?” “Yes, do you do Jews for Jesus?” the nervous voice at the other end inquired. “Excuse me?” “I mean, this is Jews for Jesus, right?” Trying to be patient, I […]
Dear Friends, In Bible times, those who wanted the higher view, the deeper understanding, the straighter walk with God and the energy to enjoy it followed a spiritual exercise—SACRIFICE! We no longer need those animal sacrifices because Jesus has atoned for sin. All that we have—from our salvation to sturdy shoe laces—is because God, in […]
