Class of the Month: On Division by Goldie Goldbloom

A Sequoia Hadassah Event with Ellen Bob

On Division is a story of awakening in middle age that also offers an eye-opening look into Brooklyn's insular Chassidic community while celebrating its comforts and struggling against its constraints. The author, Goldie Goldbloom, is a member of the Lubavitcher community and an LGBTQ activist who started writing after the birth of her eighth child. This is her second novel.
