June about June
What might be most interesting about me is that at a time when I should have been slowing down, I decided to speed up.... I was born and raised in New Rochelle, where I lived until I graduated college (The University of Pennsylvania) and married my high school sweetheart. I taught third-fith grades at The Solomon Schechter School in White Plains, NY and earned a Master's degree in Gifted and Talented Education- after all, every one of my students was definitely gifted!
Once I became a mom to my two daughters, Allison and Jennifer, I became a stay at home mom and started a little business called Fancy Schmancy. I designed and sold embellished clothing for children and loved doing that while raising my girls. I then went into our family lighting business; Murray Feiss, a 3rd generation business founded by my grandmother. I worked there until we sold it, in 2004. I now had the time and opportunity to follow some new passions, so I combined my love for cooking, my enjoyment for writing and my respect for the Museum of Jewish Heritage — a Living Memorial to the Holocaust. That's how Recipes Remembered was born and how I began writing cookbooks with a charitable flavor. On the heels of that book, I wrote The Kosher Carnivore.
Currently I am involved in a project, along with gifted photographer Brian Marcus, to photograph and honor the legacy of the Holocaust survivor community through photos and words. The Holocaust Survivor Project is looking for participants so if you are or know of a survivor who would want to participate, I hope you will contact me.
I live in Manhattan with my husband and continually write and update recipes that I will share with you in my next book. We enjoy nothing more than spending quality time with our family and quiet weekends in Bedford, New York. Remember to Eat Well and Do Good.

The vision for Women’s Philanthropy of Greater MetroWest New Jersey is to engage Jewish women through dynamic programs that benefit their lives and others in the local community, Israel and overseas. Guided by the principles of Tzedakah (righteousness), Klal Yisrael (Jewish Peoplehood), and tikkum olam (repairing the world), Women’s Philanthropy’s support of the UJA Annual Campaign enables our vision to become a reality.
