An attack on Orthodox Judaism,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Marrying of Chani Kaufman (Paperback)
All the characters portrayed as being orthodox jews were unsympathetic at best, or down right mean, avaricious and hypocritical at worst. It seems that the authoress has some kind of vendetta against orthodox Judaism. She does not hesitate to tell outight lies about the sex education given to Orthodox young people. At the conclusion of her book, the one and only likeable orthodox character (Chani) decides that her fulfilment lies in pursuing maths and sciences. Her religion is depicted as outdated, archaic, superstitious, and something better abandoned. IN the opinion of this reviewer, her book is better abandoned.
