Dr. Nora Gold is a well-known author in our community and we were privileged to have her speak about her book THE DEAD MAN to our synagogue audience of about 130. She interacted very well with the audience, both during the talk and the Q&A that followed. As a speaker, she is very warm and accessible as well as intellectually stimulating.— Nancy Machtinger, Coordinator Lunch & Learn Program, Beth Tikvah Synagogue, Toronto
Dr. Nora Gold’s Meet the Author event at the Miles Nadal JCC was just wonderful. Dr. Gold is an absolute pleasure to work with, and she is an engaging speaker. Her discussion about “The Dead Man” was very meaningful, striking powerful chords with our patrons. We received much positive feedback from our participants, and we look forward to welcoming her back to the Miles Nadal JCC in the future.— Lisa Roy, Active 55+ Coordinator, Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre, Toronto
