The Heart of Spirituality: Book Discussion Series
The six-part series continues with “My Name is Asher Lev,” by Chaim Potok. The novel brings readers into the life of a Jewish artist growing up in the 1950s. Asher Lev is a loner with an artistic gift. But his art causes conflict between him and his family and community. Can a Hasidic Jew maintain his faith while also celebrating his art? What role does art play in religion and spirituality? South Hill Branch Manager Louise Sullivan will lead the discussion.
