About this event:
We will discuss The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker. Chava is a golem, brought to life by a disgraced rabbi and abandoned at sea when the rabbi dies. Ahmad is a jinni, born of fire in the Syrian desert and released from a copper flask in turn of the century New York. They become unlikely friends and soul mates as they struggle to live and find love while overcoming the powerful adversary who threatens to destroy them.
