Or Chadash LGBTQ+ Book Club: Disobedience

Saturday, November 28, 2020 12 Kislev 5781

4:00 PM - 5:30 PMZoom

Join Or Chadash for our first ever book club as we read Disobedience by Naomi Alderman.

What is "dissed" in Disobedience is obedience--but not completely. Naomi Alderman's prize-winning first novel (Orange Prize for Fiction) challenges rigid religious authority by having its heroine assert her individual freedom, but then softens that assertion by having her realize how obedience to tradition can restore peace of mind within the frenzied modern West. Ronit Krushka is the lesbian daughter of a venerated London Rav, who returns from America to attend his funeral in the Orthodox Hendon neighborhood. For her, no dichotomies are absolute.
