The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

#1 New York Times Instant Bestseller - Alaska, 1974. Ernt Allbright came home from the Vietnam War a changed and volatile man. When he loses yet another job, he makes the impulsive decision to move his wife and daughter north where they will live off the grid in America’s last true frontier. Cora will do anything for the man she loves, even if it means following him into the unknown. Thirteen-year-old Leni, caught in the riptide of her parents’ passionate, stormy relationship, has little choice but to go along, daring to hope this new land promises her family a better future. But as winter approaches and darkness descends, Ernt’s fragile mental state deteriorates. And in their small cabin, covered in snow, blanketed in eighteen hours of the night, Leni and her mother learn the terrible truth: they are on their own.

Daughters of Torah Learning Circle
Step into Temple Isaiah's library and join a welcoming group of women who study and learn Torah each Wednesday morning.  As we travel through Judaism's sacred texts, we draw inspiration from our ancestors' journeys. Along the way, we discover connections to our own lives and our own stories. Our spirited discussions are far-ranging, sparked by challenging questions and fresh insights but always tempered with laughter and an open ear to all interpretations.
No Hebrew or prior Torah study experience is required. The door is always open! Drop-ins welcome, no RSVP necessary.

The sessions are led by Isaiah Women and Temple member Elaine Diamond, MA, Judaic Studies.
For further information, please contact Elaine Diamond directly at ediamond27@hotmail.com

When:  Every Wednesday, 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 am
