Wedding Song: Memoirs of an Iranian Jewish Woman
Ships within 2 weeks
Goldin's memoir conveys not just the personal trauma of growing up in a family fraught with discord but also the tragic human cost of religious dogmatism. In Goldin's experience, Jewish fundamentalism was intensified by an Islamic context. Although the Muslims were antagonistic to Jews, their views on women's roles and their treatment of women influenced the attitudes and practices of some Iranian Jews.In this brave and dispassionate portrayal of a little-known corner of Jewish life, Farideh Goldin confronts profound sadness yet captures a child's wonder as she savors the scenes and textures and scents of Jewish Iran. Readers share her youthful adventures and dangers, coming to understand how such experiences shape her choices as a young adult.
