Hi, I’m Lisa Alcalay Klug and I’m glad you’re here to check out my site!
As a journalist, I’ve written for leading media outlets, including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times and Associated Press.
As a bestselling author, I’ve been fortunate to have published two books with a major house. As a freelance writer, I’ve landed magazine cover stories and explored exotic destinations around the world. As a special correspondent for Israel’s IBA News, I’ve interviewed experts as an on-air media personality. As a speaker, I’ve presented at more than 100 live events in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Israel. And as an editorial consultant, I’ve worked on projects for some of America’s most prominent organizations, including Slap Company and CNN.
But all that, believe it or not, can get somewhat boring after a while!
Frequently, I field questions like, “How do you get published?” “How did you get so much publicity?” “How do I get started selling my work?” or “Can you hook me up with an agent?”
As the trickle of questions has turned into a constant stream of requests, I have hung out my shingle and started mentoring and consulting. And now, with my second book finally in stores, I’m opening the door to more!
An initial consultation is a jet-fueled session of guidance, purpose and hook-up that will empower you with the vision and tools to go places. Then, we’ll take what you’ve got and package it professionally so you can best share it with the world. Want to write a book but don’t know where to begin? Need guidance writing or putting together a book proposal? Landing a killer agent? Getting on air? Creating a tour? Ask me. I’ve done it personally… and I’m willing to help you by sharing my secrets and strategies to go farther and faster then you can imagine.
Turn my years of experience, contacts and know how into tremendous success for you!

“As a special correspondent for IBA News, Ms. Klug successfully produced a series of segments relating to an vast array of local stories. Ms. Klug covered a wide range of topics, including economics, science, travel, tourism and young immigrants serving in the IDF. She also conducted sophisticated in-studio interviews on camera with leading Jewish personalities in academics and business. In each case, Ms. Klug showed impressive initiative. She invested a great deal of thought and energy in her pieces, and managed to write, narrate and edit extremely successful TV reports that were broadcast that same evening on IBA News. She rapidly earned positive reviews from fellow staff and management.”

“There are few people on the Jewish scene today who touch as responsive a chord across generational lines as does Lisa Alcalay Klug. Whether appearing on Shalom TV, or through her unique blend of insight and humor in her books and writings, or in any personal encounter one is fortunate to experience with her, Lisa elevates the spirit while opening compelling windows into the beauties and wonders of the Jewish tradition. She is an absolute treasure.”
Rabbi Mark S. Golub, President and CEO
“In a quarter century of working in the creative and publishing areas of the organized Jewish community, I have never met anyone who can do what Lisa can. She not only writes with a snappy engaging voice that eludes many of this generation’s journalists and writers, she has an unequaled ability to find the commonality among myriad creative expressions of cultural neo-Judaism. After reading her work and seeing her enchant live audiences of unbelievable diversity, I booked her as a TV guest and she sparkled. Speaker, writer, thinker, motivator, and a compelling mind with a command of Jewish philosophy, history and ritual, Lisa Alcalay Klug is really one of a kind.”
Alan Oirich, Director of Production
“Lisa and I met about 10 years ago. And while we’ve kept in touch since, I was really surprised to find out that she was working as a special correspondent for IBA News and writing for The New York Times, prestigious in-flight magazines, and the Jerusalem Post… I was lucky enough to be interviewed by her on television. She is a true professional of the highest caliber, and a knowledgeable, dedicated, and deadline-beating journalist whom I am honored to recommend!”
Rabbi Issamar Ginzberg
Marketing Consultant and Activational Speaker
“Lisa is highly energetic and her PowerPoint was great. She resonated with most of the women, especially the young ones who gobbled her up… Lisa was a home run!”
