If All the Sea Were Ink: A Memoir by Ilana Kurshan

Synopsis: At the age of twenty-seven, alone in Jerusalem in the wake of a painful divorce, Ilana Kurshan joined the world’s largest book club, learning daf yomi, Hebrew for “daily page” of the Talmud. Her story is a tale of heartache and humor, of love and loss, of marriage and motherhood, and of learning to put one foot in front of the other by turning page after page. Kurshan takes us on a deeply accessible and personal guided tour of the Talmud. For people of the book—both Jewish and non-Jewish—If All theSeas Were Ink is a celebration of learning, through literature, how to fall in love once again.

The book is available for purchase at Chaucer's Books or Amazon or it can be rented at the Santa Barbara Library as an audio book.

We will convene on Wednesday, June 17 at 3:00 pm on Zoom to discuss the book. Link and password will be provided to those who request to join. Let’s get reading!
