Rabbi Bruce D. Forman, PhD - Owing to his love of stories and storytelling a few years later he received ordination as a maggid, a traditional teacher and storyteller. Rabbi Bruce has published dozens of articles and book chapters. This is his sixth book and the third co-authored with Shoshannah. He lives in South Florida where he practices psychotherapy and hypnosis, and serves the Jewish community by officiating at weddings and other life cycle events. He also serves as the rabbi on cruise ships.
Maggidah Shoshannah Brombacher, PhD, is an academic, visual artist, author and maggidah (ordained Jewish preacher, story teller and spiritual guide).

Smokescreen: A Jewish Approach to Stop Smoking
“When you smoke you don’t think about the significance of how smoking impacts you and your surroundings. You just smoke and go about your routine activities. But when the oppression of the cigarette has been lifted and you become a non-smoker you realize you were formerly manipulated and enslaved by tobacco and the industry that promulgated its use.”

Smokescreen and the Smokescreen Workbook is a Jewish-based approach to smoking cessation that allows the reader to achieve a spiritual cleansing and healing accompanied by the use of strategies and techniques that have been derived from both Jewish sources and the behavioral sciences. While we anticipate that most readers are likely to be of Jewish heritage, we believe that those who come from other faith traditions, notably those of Abrahamic roots, will take away meaningful lessons that can improve their spiritual lives and thus lead them to eliminate smoking from their lives as well.
