Book Summary of Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of ...

(Paperback)

As a member of the strictly religious Satmar sect of Hasidic Judaism, Deborah Feldman grew up under a code of relentlessly enforced customs governing everything from what she could wear and to whom she could speak to what she was allowed to read. It was stolen moments spent with the empowered literary characters of Jane Austen and Louisa May Alcott that helped her to imagine an alternative way of life. Trapped as a teenager in a sexually and emotionally dysfunctional marriage to a man she barely knew, the tension between Deborah's desires and her responsibilities as a good Satmar girl grew more explosive until she gave birth a


In this arresting memoir about growing up inNand ultimately escaping fromNa strict Hasidic community, Feldman reveals what life is like trapped within a religious sect that values silence and suffering over individual freedoms. Includes a new Epilogue by the author.
