Qesher Book Club: ‘The Sweet Fragrance of Life & Other Horror Stories’

Hosted By: Qesher

Renowned Jewish vocalist and writer Elizabeth Schwartz’s first book of fiction, “The Sweet Fragrance of Life & Other Stories,” is a meditation on historic European Jewish culture seen through the lens of a woman’s point of view. She will read excerpts from her stories and talk about the religious, cultural, and historical factors that shaped them and her approach to traditional Jewish art. The author weaves in rich historical particulars, from the political climate of decades past to an account of a real-life incident that inspired one of the tales.

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.
