When you part company with the life you’ve been living, how do you start a new one? Divorce, single parenting, accidents, misadventures and unexpectedly falling in love with someone of a different faith were all things Jenna Zark never thought would happen to her. Yet, when her marriage to a Jewish clergyman fell apart, she had to figure out what she believed and whether she could raise her son Jewishly. The answer came not in straight lines but in crooked ones — leading her to the people she was meant to meet. Offering a front-row look at little-known Jewish holidays and rituals (and well-known ones too), Zark shares how past traditions helped her with present-day dilemmas.
