I learned a lot from Steve over the years about Israel and contemporary Jewish life. We could disagree but it was important to have the conversation with Steve and learn from him. He is a leading light in Jewish education in America and an important voice.

We shared the same interest; we fought for the same principles.
Review from Denver’s first African American Mayor Wellington Webb on his 40-year friendship with Steve and Joyce Foster.
If you want to learn how a remarkable couple can engage deeply in their community, and thrive, we should read The Rabbi and Senator Sleep Together. I have known and worked with Steve and Joyce Foster for decades and their lives have been "profiles in courage". As a former Mayor of Denver, I could always count on the Fosters standing up against prejudice, tackling difficult challenges, and fashioning constructive solutions to divisive issues. They have never hesitated or wavered in the face of controversy or criticism. We can all learn from their lives and experiences and our community is truly better because of their enormous contributions.

For those who have a passion for serving others The Rabbi and Senator Sleep Together is a must read. Strong advocacy along with a genuine respect for those who may disagree has guided the path of Rabbi Steven and Senator Joyce Foster. In the process, they have aided all of us in learning how to make a difference in our own lives.
Review from Hank Brown, former: U.S. Senator (R-Colo.) and president of the University of Colorado and University of Northern Colorado
Rabbi Steve Foster and Senator Joyce Foster have been wonderful friends to me for many years. Their passion for their community, public service, and social justice issues is unsurpassed. Throughout their over 50 years of marriage, they have taught their children, grandchildren and those of us who are lucky to have them as friends the meaning of love, friendship and giving back to their community and the country. In my own journey of public service as Colorado Attorney General, United States Senator, and Secretary of Interior, Steve and Joyce have inspired and guided me with their wisdom and example. I wholeheartedly endorse their wonderful biographical work and hope that others will learn of their rich history and giving spirit.
