(l-r) Vera Koppel, coordinator of the Ruach program at Young Israel of New Rochelle, and author, Pamela Hull.

On March 27, author and former resident of New Rochelle, Pamela Hull, was the guest speaker at the Young Israel of New Rochelle Ruach program where she discussed her newly released memoir, “Moments that Mattered.”

In “Moments that Mattered,” Hull wrote stories of ordinary experiences that were passed over or dismissed but hold clues to lifetime behaviors, attitudes and choices.

“I was honored to share my Ruach moments and stories with those attending the program,” said Hull. “My inspiration for this novel was to show how moments which may seem insignificant at the time may, eventually, prove to be life-altering in forming character, direction and inclination, which leads to awakened insight that is pivotal in coming to a deeper sense of ourselves.

Ruach is a weekly program that invites experts in their field to address members of the Young Israel of New Rochelle congregation and the public.

An interior designer and painter, Pamela Hull wrote her first book, “Where’s My Bride?” at age 60. Hull’s essays and poetry have been widely published in literary journals such as The Bellevue Literary Review, Ars Medica, Lumina and North Dakota Quarterly. Her recent book, “Say Yes! Flying Solo After Sixty” explores how neither age nor being alone is an impediment to living a rich life, a significant work for men and women in their golden years.
