In this five-session book series, co-sponsored by The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and Moment Magazine, we’ll explore today’s Israel through the eyes of writers. Join us for session four to discuss If All the Seas Were Ink by Ilana Kurshan.
If All the Seas Were Ink is a memoir of a young, pregnant, recently divorced American-Israeli, living in Jerusalem, whose personal struggles lead her to take on the practice of Daf Yomi, reading a page from the Talmud every day for seven years. Kurshan’s inspiring memoir about learning how to put one foot in front of the other is a winner of the Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature.
