Jlife Buzz- Congregation Torat El’s Popular “Meet the Author” Continues

May 5 program features Corie Adjmi, Author of The Marriage Box

  Recently, Congregation Torat El held its latest event of the popular and innovative “Meet the Author” series, featuring Corie Adjmi, who spoke about her book, “The Marriage Box.” The program was held at 301 Monmouth Road in Oakhurst, and was also available on Zoom.
    Casey Cohen is a teenage Middle Eastern Jew in 1970s New Orleans. She gets mixed up with the wrong crowd and when she really gets into trouble; her parents decide to return to their roots in the Orthodox Syrian Jewish community in Brooklyn. Casey’s world is turned upside down as she tries to adjust to new experiences and new friends. She is at first shocked by the unfamiliar culture, but ends up marrying at eighteen, believing she can adjust to the Syrian culture and her husband’s ways. Ultimately, she is not sure she can integrate the world she grew up in and the world she married into.

Corie Adjmi is the author of essays and short stories that have appeared in HuffPost, North American Review, Indiana Review, Medium, Motherwell, and Kveller. Her short story collection, “Life and Other Shortcomings,” won multiple awards.
    You can a copy of her book from Bookshop.org (to support independent bookstores) or amazon.com.
    This ongoing series has been made possible by a generous grant from the B’nai Sholom/Beth El Foundation. For more information please visit www.mta.torat-el.org.
