Please join us for our next summer reading, Daniel Goldfarb's Modern Orthodox. The flyer below will give you all the details.
In a Manhattan coffee shop, Ben, an Upper West Side financial consultant, meets Hershel, an Orthodox jewel merchant, to buy an engagement ring. Although both men are Jewish, it is their shared religion that instantly divides them. Tension mounts in the midst of the deal when Ben suggests Hershel remove his yarmulke. Desperate to make the sale, Hershel obliges.
In the apartment they share, Ben proposes to his girlfriend, Hannah, a sensitive yet strong-minded doctor. Hannah accepts, but the moment is muddled by mixed emotions for each of them by the sudden and unexpected arrival of Hershel on their doorstep.
