Blog posts about the Rabbi Aviva Cohen Mysteries and their author Rabbi Ilene Schneider

I realized the other day that I had neglected an important aspect of marketing my books: merchandizing. So I have created A Modest Proposal for the Rabbi Aviva Cohen In Action and Inaction Figures (3 in each category).

Each figure will be smaller and wider than normal and will come standard with unruly white-streaked red curls, glasses, saggy boobs, and flat feet.

I hope Mattel, Hasbro, and other manufacturers of action figures, including Lego, are reading.
