The Book of Separation: A Memoir by Tova Mirvis

Born and raised in a tight-knit Orthodox Jewish family, Tova Mirvis committed herself to observing the rules and rituals prescribed by this way of life. After all, to observe was to be accepted and to be accepted was to be loved. She married a man from within the fold and quickly began a family. But over the years, her doubts became noisier than her faith, and at age forty Tova decided to leave her husband and her faith. 

This is a memoir about what it means to decide to heed your inner compass at long last. To free the part of yourself that has been suppressed, even if it means walking away from the only life you've ever known. 
 
There is no charge for this event, but please RSVP to sisterhood@olamtikvah.org by December 1 so we know how many people plan to attend.
