As Mountains Around Jerusalem
This is the story of four young people from the four corners of the earth: Bob is a farm boy from the Midwest. Ya’akov is an Australian yeshiva boy. Sharon is a rich girl from New England. Yonah is a Yemenite girl from Israel.
They all meet in Jerusalem, the center of the world. Two are converts to Judaism. Readers of the author’s last novel, A Time to Rend, a Time to Sew, will remember Leah and her own journey back to Judaism. In this book they will meet her again as a young Rebbetzin helping others on their way. “As the mountains are around Jerusalem,” the Psalmist tells us, “so is the Lord around His people.” And Leah adds a word of encouragement: The mountains may make it hard to get in, but once you are in, they are your protection.
Like author Rachel Pomerantz’s other books, this novel is a moving, eloquent and inspiring story of our times, of the search for meaning, the eternity of the Jewish People, and of Divine Providence.
