  1. Dear ms Macaulay – Lewis, , I just finished reading your book “Bayt Farhi” and I wanted to tell you how fascinating it was . Your thorough scholarly examination of the history of the Farhi family , the Jews of Damascus, the construction , decoration , and restoration of the house in exquisite detail was enlightening . Your book is a real treasure.
