The Hidden Palace: The Golem and the Jinni (Beit Midrash)
Saturday, April 15, 12:45 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
by Helene Wecker, led by Ginny Baird
Wecker returns, eight years after The Golem and the Jinni, with a sequel that brings the saga into the 20th century. In a blend of romance, Mary Shelley–esque horror, and folklore, Wecker recounts the continuing adventures of Chava, the Jewish golem, and Ahmad, the Arabian jinni. Wecker skillfully combines the storylines of numerous other players, good and evil, in a story that, while self-contained, gives every promise of being continued. An enchanting tale that, though demanding lots of suspended disbelief, pleases on every page.
