About the event

This  book is a historical non-fiction based on her mother's life, Zina  Abraham who was born in a Soviet Uzbek prison in 1933. Ultimately released from prison and strapped to her mother's chest, Zina and her  mother, traveled by horseback undetected to Afghanistan. But as a woman in Afghanistan, she was still essentially in prison, concealed from the  outside world with no access to education or medical care. Abraham's story takes us on sweeps and swirls through Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, and  Pakistan. Her quest toward religious freedom and education transports  us to India, to Israel, and then finally to the United States. Central  to each chapter of her life is a story of survival and deep faith and  commitment to build and nurture a Jewish life for herself and her  community.

Dahlia  Abraham-Klein is a writer on Central Asian Jewish history and Jewish  values. Her articles have appeared on The Tablet, Chabad, Jewish  Journal, and The Times of Israel. She is a teacher at Partners in Torah offering a personalized learning experience on the system of life  through Jewish wisdom.
