"The bamboo cradle that gently rocked our tiny Chinese daughter to sleep came to symbolize our own beginnings in the discovery of our heritage. In the land where bamboo fields whisper echoes of the sea, we heard a voice calling us home. We did not know then that the voice came from deep within our souls. For the first time, we turned our heart to G-d and He answered our prayers. From our bamboo cradle we emerged into a world of timeless, andcient wisdom. We cut our teeth on Torah and learned to walk with the Prophets; the first words we uttered were words of devotion. Each day dawned on new revelations and faith in the Almighty filled our lives with joy." (From the author's introduction)
