Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots by Deborah Feldman

picture of book cover

To understand Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots , or to even talk about it, I think it has to be clear what it is, and is not.
It is a fascinating coming-of-age story. It is not reflective of the Orthodox community as a whole. I’m not even sure it’s reflective of much more than one woman’s experience in the Hasidic Satmar sect that lives in Willamsburg, Brooklyn.
