About this title:

Synopsis:

Winner of the 2007 Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature (Jewish Book Council)
Winner of the 2006 Ribalow Prize (Hadassah Magazine),
Shortlisted for the 2006 Wingate Prize (Jewish Quarterly)

Shulamit Shepher pays one last visit to her grandparents' home in Jerusalem after a fateful discovery―a mysterious and valuable Torah manuscript that's been stashed away in the attic genizah, a depository for old or damaged sacred documents, has been uncovered. So begins a remarkable journey that spans four generations of the family Shepher, one that begs Shulamit to reconsider not only her ancestors' history and heritage but her own passions, faith, and choices for the future. Haunting and illuminating, The Genizah at the House of Shepher is a tale of love and loss, exile and belonging, tradition and myth that no reader will soon forget.

From the Publisher: Tamar Yellin has been named the recipient of three major awards for her first two published titles. In December 2006, Yellin received the 2006 Harold U. Ribalow Award Ceremony for her debut novel, The Genizah at the House of Shepher . Just days later, Yellin also received the 2006 Reform Judaism Prize for Jewish Fiction for Kafka in Brontëland And now, Yellin has won the first place in the prestigious Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature, the largest-ever Jewish literary prize given, and one of the largest literary prizes in the nation. The Jewish Book Council, administrator of the prize, announced Yellin, author of The Genizah at the House of Shepher, is the first recipient of the $100,000 Award.
