Sisterhood Evening Book Discussion Group
Join Sisterhood for a discussion on If All the Seas Were Ink by Ilana Kurshan: At the age of twenty-seven, alone in Jerusalem in the wake of a painful divorce, Ilana Kurshan joined the world’s largest book club, learning daf yomi, Hebrew for“daily page” of the Talmud, a book of rabbinic teachings spanning about six hundred years. Her story is a tale of heartache and humor, of love and loss, of marriage and motherhood, and of learning to put one foot in front of the other by turning page after page. Kurshan takes us on a deeply accessible and personal guided tour of the Talmud. For people of the book — both Jewish and non-Jewish — If All the Seas Were Ink is a celebration of learning, through literature, how to fall in love once again. Books are on reserve at the Roslyn Library and they will cross honor Shelter Rock Library. Facilitator: Wende Jager-Hyman.
