My Journey Home is the tale of guts and courage and the furthest reaches of
G-d-given inner strength. In Yiddish terminology, it might be best characterized as a story of chutzpah -- a combination of audacity and bravado. This is the story of an extreme transformation of Steve Riback, whose religion is tightly woven into the faith and practices of Judaism. It portrays in fervent detail how Riback, a member of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, fought a lonely and haunting battle for years against a veiled derisiveness from non-Jewish peers...and all because he sought the right to wear a beard and head-covering, in conformance with his religion

STEVE RIBACK has over 19 years of law enforcement experience and currently works as a detective sergeant on an investigative squad with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Riback lives in Las Vegas with his wife and three children.
