ForWarD"- Tishrei 5764; the just-released publication by Friends
With Diabetes that every Jew with diabetes will want to own. It's
not just a book, it's a lucid, comprehensive, all-inclusive guide
for the Jewish diabetic.
Some highlights of
this issue: The carbohydrate contents of traditional Rosh Hashanah
simanim; the tricky ifs, whys, and hows of fasting (or not
fasting) on Yom Kippur; how to get Shabbos blood sugars under
control... Plus: an amazingly easy method for figuring
carbohydrate values without complicated mathematics, and how
twenty-first century technology can make tracking blood sugars
It's all in here-
unbelievably detailed, exhaustively researched, completely
updated, and beautifully presented. Informative, enlightening,
inspirational, and enjoyable!
Part of a series, the
Tishrei publication represents just one facet of FWD's many
activities. They also provide much-needed support and education in
one-on-one settings as well as larger forums such as Shabbosim,
meetings, and support groups. The demand for these services is
unfortunatly large, yet FWD's message is heartening: As long as
there's diabetes, there are Friends With Diabetes!
