Traveling the world throughout my career and engaging with families, different cultures and religions exposed me to the rich tapestry of people, diversity and faiths that have many common characteristics in celebrations, festivals and gatherings. I wanted this book to depict that although there may be differences in beliefs, different beliefs can find common meaning in the world.” – Neil Goldberg
