Ruchama King Feuerman in Conversation with Beth Bosworth at Greenlight Bookstore

Apr 28, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

On Monday, April 28, at 7:30 p.m., Ruchama King Feuerman will discuss her novel In the Courtyard of the Kabbalist with author Beth Bosworth at Greenlight Bookstore.

Set in Jerusalem, In the Courtyard of the Kabbalist is the story of former Lower East Side haberdasher Isaac, now an assistant to an elderly rabbi; Mustafa, a physically deformed Arab janitor who works on the Temple Mount; and the beautiful Tamar, a young American woman searching for a righteous man. The novel is a thriller, a courtship tale, and a gentle clash between civilizations. Feuerman paints a world that is alive with mystical currents and her characters come from all walks of life: immigrants and natives; Muslim and Jewish; prophets and lost souls. As her characters move through their world, they are never sure if they will fall prey to the cruel tricks of luck or be sheltered by a higher power.

Ruchama King Feuerman’s first novel, the highly acclaimed Seven Blessings, was a Hadassah Book Club selection. She lives with her family in New Jersey.
