Friday, June 21 – Book Club

Discussion of Maggie Anton’s Rashi’s Daughters historical novel series:

Book 1 focuses on Joheved, the eldest of the three girls. She finds her mind and spirit awakened by religious study, but, knowing the risk, she must keep her passion for learning and prayer hidden. When she becomes betrothed to Meir ben Samuel, she is forced to choose between marital happiness and being true to her love of the Talmud.

Book 2 picks up the tale with the story of Miriam, the lively and daring middle child. She is determined to bring new life safely into her community and becomes a midwife. As devoted as she is to her chosen path, she cannot foresee the ways in which she will be tested and how heavily she will need to rely on her faith.
