JUST finished reading ‘My Name Is Asher Lev’ by Chem Potok. A stunning piece of work. The story follows the life of a Ladover Hasid Jew from Brooklyn who observes his religion, it’s Kosher food, and it’s deep rooted traditions. In his early childhood his artistic gift comes to life. The book shows a battle between his art and his faith. A fascinating story which yields an intimate insight into the life of a devout Jew and the beyond the norm struggles of a brilliant artist. Well worth a read.
