“Lown” – Judaica – November 2019

Dinah, by Jane Trigère

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I appreciate your taking the time and commitment reviewing this list of recent acquisitions. Our goal has always been to fulfill and nourish the scholar and librarian’s quest for unusual and hard-to-find Judaica and books on the Shoah. This is a dance we do together. It also involves your choosing to waltz along with us.

The 16th of November will mark (on the Hebrew calendar) a year since my wife Hanna Jane left us. Alongside is an illustration she made based on a story called Family by Devora Baron. More such illustrations and their significance can be seen by going to Jane’s website at JaneTrigere.com and going to “Artwork > Women and Their Stories“. While there, you can also enjoy reading her “Musings” and Midrashim.

I thought I would share some of the books that I’m currently hoping to read (laughs). Some are old favorites, and some are new discoveries.

  • Survivors and Exiles: Yiddish Culture After the Holocaust, Jan Schwarz
  • The World of Yesterday, Stefan Zweig
  • From That Place and Time: A Memoir, Lucy Dawidowicz (inspired by a lecture by Professor Nancy Sinkoff, who has a book coming out on Dawidowicz)
  • The Flight Portfolio, A Novel, Julie Orringer (about Varian Fry and his rescue work in France. Her last novel, The Invisible Bridge, was stunning)
  • Selected Poems, Elaine Feinstein

The old favorites:

  • My Grandfather’s Blessings, Rachel Remen
  • Under the Table & How to Get Up: Jewish Pathways of Spiritual Growth, Abraham Greenbaum
  • The Man Who Planted Trees, A Story, Jean Giono
