Anderson: Standing up for Israel


He gave me my autographed copy when he was here last weekend. It’s just available at Amazon, I am ordering several for Christmas presents. His mother, Marblehead native Jane Anderson Morse, was one of the first women ordained an Episcopal minister. She died at age 51; her son honored her by using her photo in the cutout of the whirlwind from which God spoke to Job.

Jane got her doctorate on the Book of Job, which remains a mystery to many of us. Yet I’ll end with the Jewish prayer that I always say at Thanksgiving dinner: “Grateful, am I, to You.”


Barbara Anderson of Marblehead is a Salem News columnist.
