‘In the Courtyard of the Kabbalist’ Named a Sophie Brody Award Honor Book February 03, 2015

We are pleased to announce that Ruchama King Feuerman’s In the Courtyard of the Kabbalist received an honorable mention for the 2015 Sophie Brody Medal for achievement in Jewish literature at the American Library Association Midwinter Meeting in Chicago.

In the Courtyard of the Kabbalist, set in Jerusalem, is the story of two expatriate Americans—a kabbalist’s assistant and a beautiful motorcycle-riding woman—and an Arab janitor, whose lives become intertwined in a variety of ways in the courtyard of an elderly kabbalist and his wife.
