Description
A fascinating narrative of community and faith, Charles London's Far From Zion "explores the Jewish Diaspora in some of the most unexpected places from Burma to Tehran to Cuba and even Bentonville, Arkansas. The award-winning author of the highly acclaimed One Day the Soldiers Came, "London tells the stories of the Jews who stayed behind, choosing to remain in the countries of their birth rather than immigrating to the Holy Land of Israel. At once a riveting modern history of a scattered People of the Book and London's moving story of his own personal odyssey of religious and cultural discovery, Far From Zion "is an affecting and unforgettable study of diversity, tenacity, survival, and rebirth.
