Tova Mirvis on "The Book of Separation"

AFMDA - Join Us and Help Save Lives in Israel

Conservative Synagogue Adath Israel of Riverdale (CSAIR) is proud to host a book discussion and reading with author, Ms. Tova Mirvis. Ms. Mirvis wrote her memoir about her struggle leaving the Orthodox community and the life she created. 

The author will join the Riverdale Jewish community to read from her memoir "A Book of Separation: A Memoir" was released in October 2017. 

In this book, the author sets out to explore what it means to leave a way of life that is mapped out and enter into a world where there are fewer expectations and rules. The book explores how you shed a world that has shaped you and asks whether you can leave parts of it while holding on to some of it. It’s a book about letting go and starting over, a book about learning to live with uncertainty and to heed your own voice.

Ms. Mirvis is the author of three novels: "Visible City," "The Outside World" and "The Ladies Auxiliary," a national bestseller. Her essays have appeared in various publications, including the New York Times, the Boston Globe Magazine, the Huffington Post, and Poets and Writers, and her fiction has been broadcast on NPR. She lives in Newton, Massachusetts.

In addition to our exciting discussion, we will have refreshments, book signing and photo ops.

FREE and Open to All.   RSVP at    Books for sale in advance and at the door.
