Author Event: Naomi Ragen
January 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Online Program (Zoom)
Join us for a virtual author talk and Q&A with novelist Naomi Ragen. She will be discussing her latest book An Observant Wife.
Yaakov and Leah are plunged into their lives together as Yaakov leaves his yeshiva to work in the city, and Leah confronts the restrictions imposed by religious laws that govern even their most intimate moments. Adding to their difficulties is the hostility of some who continue to view Leah as a dangerous interloper, questioning her adherence to religious laws and spreading outrageous rumors. In the midst of their attempts to reach a balance between their human needs and their spiritual obligations, the discovery of a forbidden relationship between their troubled teenage daughter and a local boy precipitates a maelstrom of life-changing consequences for all.
Naomi Ragen is an award-winning novelist, journalist, and playwright. Her first book, Jephte’s Daughter, was listed among the 100 most important Jewish books of all time. Her bestselling novels include Sotah, The Covenant, The Sisters Weiss, and Devil in Jerusalem.
