Glancing simply at its title, few would have imagined that Deborah Feldman's 2012 Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots would become a bestseller, but it did. Jewish and non-Jewish readers alike found Feldman's account of her loveless marriage and her painful experiences in the Satmar community gripping and well-written. In this new memoir, she describes her new life as a single mother living beyond the walls of the insular world she once knew. She also offers fascinating insights into her ideas and feelings about what Judaism now means to her.
