NEW YORK — US Sen. Joseph Lieberman is working on a book about his Jewish faith.
& Schuster's Howard Books division announced Thursday that "Gift of
Rest" will come out in August. Co-written by David Klinghoffer, the
book is a reflection on Lieberman's observance of the Jewish Sabbath, a
day of rest.
The 68-year-old Lieberman, a longtime Connecticut
Democrat re-elected as an independent in 2006, recently announced he
would not run in 2012. As Al Gore's running mate in 2000, he narrowly
missed becoming the first Jewish vice president.
