Lieberman writing book on the joys of Sabbath


WASHINGTON (JTA) — U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman is writing a book on the benefits of the Sabbath.

Lieberman (I-Conn.), who recently announced he will not run again, is co-writing the book with David Klinghoffer, according to Howard Books.

"In this book, Lieberman will offer the gift of Sabbath observance — a gift that has anchored, ordered, and inspired his life — to readers of all faiths," said a release this week from the publisher, a Christian imprint of Simon & Schuster.

The book will appear in August. In 2007, Howard published "An Amazing Adventure" by Joe and Hadassah Lieberman, an account of the 2000 election, when Lieberman was the first Jewish candidate on a major presidential ticket.

Lieberman left the Democratic Party in 2006 when he lost its primary. He regained his Senate seat running as an independent.
