Who I am and who I’m not

I’m an American-born journalist and travel writer based in Jerusalem.

Internet searches turn up a journalist in Europe with the same name. Also a psychologist in the United States. And also a young woman in South Africa whose Orthodox Jewish relatives sometimes send me e-mail messages by mistake.

Perhaps if I used my maiden name (Strauch) there would be less confusion. But I’ve been Esther Hecht for so long and have published so many articles under this byline that any other name would feel like a flouncy skirt instead of my usual comfortable jeans.
