Book Discussion:  Unorthodox:

The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots

By Deborah Feldman

Presented by Carol Stern and Carolyn Pompa

Unorthodox conveys an intimate portrayal of a young woman growing up in an environment of religious constraint and chronicles her departure from the Satmar Hasidic Jewish sect in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Please join us at the Glen Cove Library as librarians Carol Stern and Carolyn Pompa lead a lively discussion of this fascinating memoir which reveals what life is like trapped within a religious tradition that values silence and suffering over individual freedoms.  Copies of the book will be available at the Reference desk.
