Event Details

Author Barbara Artson in conversation with her son Rabbi Dr. Bradley Shavit Artson, Vice President, AJU, and Abner & Roslyn Goldstine Dean’s Chair, Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies

This sweeping tale of love, faith and tradition begins in a shetl in Odessa and follows the fates of two sons: one who escapes anti-Semitism by emigrating to America, the other to Israel/Palestine. This multigenerational immigrant story reveals how the mysterious ties that hold a family together can help them survive the heartache of separation and loss, and how secrets about heritage can finally be uncovered.
