Author coming to Rockland JCC

Naomi Ragen
Naomi Ragen

Rockland Jewish Family Service, the JCC Rockland, and Good Samaritan Hospital host an evening of health and wellness workshops, vendors, and a lecture by author Naomi Ragen at the JCC. A grab-and-go dinner will be available to buy from Lillian’s Cafe before the Tuesday, November 12, symposium. The evening starts at 5 p.m.

Naomi Ragen is an American-Israeli novelist, playwright, and journalist, who writes in English and has lived in Jerusalem since 1971. She has written for the Jerusalem Post and other notable Israeli publications. Her just-released novel, “An Unorthodox Match,” tells the story of a California woman, Lola, who has her life all set up, with a business degree, a fast track career, and a handsome fiancé, but feels something in her life is missing, and takes the radical step of joining an insular ultra-Orthodox community in Boro Park. It is the unexpected messages of her new community that finally force her into a deeper understanding of the real choices she now faces and that ultimately will decide her fate.

The symposium will take place on November 12, from 5 to 8 p.m., at the JCC. Tickets cost between $25 and $90. For more information, go to RJFS.org. The Rockland Jewish Family Service and JCC Rockland are on the Rockland Jewish Community Campus, 450 West Nyack Road in West Nyack.
