Ilana Kurshan will discuss core themes in her book and how she came to write it. Led by Ilana, we will also study some of the classical Jewish texts that engendered the book and that are central to her themes.

We encourage participants to read the book in advance to enhance the nature of the discussion. Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event.

At the age of 27, alone in Jerusalem in the wake of a painful divorce, Ilana Kurshan joined the world’s largest book club, learning daf yomi, Hebrew for “daily page” of the Talmud, a book of rabbinic teachings spanning about 600 years and the basis for all codes of Jewish law. By the time she completed the Talmud after seven and a half years, Kurshan was remarried with three young children. This memoir is a tale of heartache and humor, of love and loss, of marriage and motherhood, and of learning to put one foot in front of the other by turning page after page. For people of the book — both Jewish and non-Jewish — "If All the Seas Were Ink" is a celebration of learning, through literature, how to fall in love once again.
