Featuring Naomi Ragen

5pm Workshops • 7:30pm Keynote

Enjoy an evening of health and wellness workshops, grab and go dinner from Lillian’s Cafe and special guest, Naomi Ragen.

Naomi Ragen is an American-born novelist, playwright and journalist who has lived in Jerusalem since 1971. Naomi has written for the Jerusalem Post and other publications in Israel and abroad, about Israel and Jewish issues. Her newest novel, available Fall 2019, An Unorthodox Match takes on the whole subject of newly observant Jews and how they are treated by the religious community. It’s about California girl Lola, who has her life all set up: business degree, handsome fiancé, fast track career, when suddenly, without warning, everything tragically implodes. But it is the shocking and unexpected messages of her new community itself which will finally force her into a deeper understanding of the real choices she now faces, and which will ultimately decide her fate.
