About this Item

228 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.9in. x 0.7in.Set during the hopeful yet turbulent years of the Clinton-sponsored Camp David peace talks between Yasir Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin, Widow Zion traces the unlikely romantic encounter of Stella, a wealthy Jewish American widow on a Holy Land Tour and Aryeh, her recalcitrant escort, an Israeli widower and war-weary old soldier. Their meeting results in a poignant, and eventually tragic, series of misadventures set into motion by Aryehs well-intentioned matchmaking cousin Leo, a Holocaust survivor driven by conflicting desires for material success and an almost mystical passion for tikkun-spiritual repair of a broken world. Bruised by her troubled marriage and traumatized by the recent suicide of her favored son, Stella is initially cynical and resists Leos mission; while Aryeh, too literally and figuratively wounded by Israels legacy of never-ending war, clings to old family grudges and resents his cousins intrusion. But Leo is a force too powerful to resist, and both inevitably succumb to his undeliverable promise of spiritual renewal Based on the centuries-old struggle between Jews and Arabs in its current PalestinianIsraeli incarnation, this contemporary re-telling of the ancient biblical story of exile and return reveals that the source of the so-called clash of civilizations lies within the Jewish Diaspora itself. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781936671182

About this title

Synopsis:

Set during the hopeful yet turbulent years of the Clinton-sponsored Camp David peace talks between Yasir Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin, Widow Zion traces the unlikely romantic encounter of Stella, a wealthy Jewish American widow on a "Holy Land Tour" and Aryeh, her recalcitrant escort, an Israeli widower and war-weary old soldier. Their meeting results in a poignant, and eventually tragic, series of misadventures set into motion by Aryeh's well-intentioned matchmaking cousin Leo, a Holocaust survivor driven by conflicting desires for material success and an almost mystical passion for tikkun-spiritual repair of a broken world. Bruised by her troubled marriage and traumatized by the recent suicide of her favored son, Stella is initially cynical and resists Leo's mission; while Aryeh, too literally and figuratively wounded by Israel's legacy of never-ending war, clings to old family grudges and resents his cousin's intrusion. But Leo is a force too powerful to resist, and both inevitably succumb to his undeliverable promise of spiritual renewal Based on the centuries'-old struggle between Jews and Arabs in its current Palestinian/Israeli incarnation, this contemporary re-telling of the ancient biblical story of exile and return reveals that the source of the so-called "clash of civilizations" lies within the Jewish Diaspora itself.
