“The Diamond Setter,” by Moshe Sakal

In this semi-autobiographical novel, Sakal employs a nested folktale device and draws on true events to tell the tale of the uneventful life of a jeweler from Tel Aviv that changes abruptly after Fareed, a handsome young man from Damascus, crosses illegally into Israel, making his way to the ancient port city of Jaffa in search of his roots.

Ahavas Israel’s Book Group – February

February 8, 2024
“The Tunnel,” by A.B. Yehoshua

A.B. Yehoshua surprises and delights once again with a story about aging and acceptance. The acclaimed author has crafted a tale which is both uniquely Israeli and yet universal in theme; everyone ages and weakens, but dignity and integrity need not fade.
