The Rabbi’s Daughter

The Rabbi’s Daughter

Author(s): Reva Mann

Location(s): Jerusalem, London

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs

Era(s): 2000s



The book starts with the early life of the writer growing up in an Orthodox household , her rebellion against her parents, and her subsequent enlightenment when she embraces her faith by marrying her husband, also from the Orthodox community. The main part of the book describes their life together in Jerusalem, her immersion and observance of the strict tenures of her faith, followed by her withdrawal from the hard observance of religion in her everyday life. It is a riveting and compulsive read.
