When people looked at Delores Gray, they saw a dynamic corporate executive, a devoted African-American minister, an American success story. But there was another side to this granddaughter of Mississippi sharecroppers - a yearning soul that longed for something that she could not name. As a child she dreamed of walking in the footsteps of the Patriarch Abraham; as an adult she walked through the Holy Land and felt something profound stir within her.
The story of how Delores Gray, a minister from Chicago and Los Angeles, became Ahuvah Gray, a Torah-observant Jew living in the holy city of Jerusale,, is a compelling and fascinating one. It is a tale of earthquakes, both physical and spiritual, a story of friendship and of almost unbelievable hashgachah peratis (divine providence). In My Sister, the Jew Ahuvah shares with us her journey of discovery, allowing us to look at her life with wonder and astonishment - and to look at our own lives with renewed inspiration and faith.
"Knowing Ahuvah Gray is a spiritual adventure... Presenting the heroines of the Bible has always been a challenge... Ahuvah is one of those heroines. Her story cannot fail to inspire us to make our own lives a big bitter."
