Kol Ami Book Club- Unorthodox

Tuesday, May 26, 2020 3 Sivan 5780

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Now adapted as a Netflix TV show, Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots is the autobiographical story of author Deborah Feldman, who grew up under a code of relentlessly enforced customs governing everything, including what she could wear, to whom she could speak and what she was allowed to read. It was stolen moments spent with the works of Jane Austen and Louisa May Alcott that helped her begin to imagine an alternative way of life. Trapped as a teenager in a sexually and emotionally dysfunctional marriage to a man she barely knew, she gave birth at 19, and the tension between Deborah’s desires and her responsibilities as a good Hasidic wife grew more explosive. She realized that, for the sake of herself and her son, she had to escape. Read the book and/or watch the Netflix show and come prepared to discuss with your Kol Ami Book Club buddies!
