Literary Season Opener with NAOMI RAGEN: The Sisters Weiss

Thursday, October 31 at 2:30 p.m.

The latest from the internationally best-selling author, journalist and playwright (Women’s Minyan) is a powerful and deeply moving examination of loyalty and betrayal.  In 1950’s Brooklyn, sisters Rose and Pearl Weiss grow up in a loving but strict ultra-Orthodox family, never dreaming of defying their parents or their community.  A chance meeting with a young French immigrant turns Rose’s world upside down. Pushed to the edge, she commits an act so unforgivable it will exile her forever from her family and all she has ever known.
