Qesher Book Club: ‘Stranger in the Desert—A Family Story’

Hosted By: Qesher

Inspired by family lore, a young writer embarks on an epic quest through the Argentine Andes in search of a heritage spanning hemispheres and centuries, from the Jewish Levant to turn-of-the-century trade routes in South America. Combining travelog, history, memoir, and reportage, “Stranger in the Desert” transports readers from the lonely plains of Patagonia to the breathtaking altiplano of the high Andes, from the old Jewish quarter of Damascus to today’s vibrant neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. It is also a fervent journey of self-discovery as Jordan Salama grapples with his own Jewish, Arab, and Latin American identities, interrogating the stories families tell themselves and to what end.

Host

Qesher

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all, people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. The aim of Qesher is to connect these different Jewish traditions, not just to know of each other, but to learn about each other. We believe that there is great value in creating a deeper understanding within the Jewish world and exploring Jewish experiences and identities in all their diversity.
