An Eye On The Town

Ragan's World

On May 27, a multigenerational crowd of sev-
eral hundred people turned out to hear novelist
Naomi Ragen at Adat Shalom Synagogue for
an adult education event co-sponsored with
Temple Israel.

Author Naomi Ragen

American-born, Ragen
.has lived in Jerusalem for
the last 33 years. "The
sound a bomber makes as
Elaine Robins, Deanna Weisman, Fran Pearlman
he blows himself up is a
language. It should be
responded to in kind," she emphasized to the spellbound crowd.
She says the inspiration for each of her books has been real life. As an
Orthodox Jewish woman, her books are her "bimah" for speaking out.
Ragen's latest projects include a new book, The Covenant, about a terrorist
kidnapping, due out in 2004, and a play, Women's Minyan, currently being per-
formed at Israel's National Theater.
Elaine Robins and Deanna Weisman of Adat Shalom, and Fran Pearlman
Temple Israel were the co-chairs. Among those enjoying the lecture were Susie
Pappas, Beverly Liss, Dr. Rob Robins, and Rabbis Daniel Nevins, Paul
Yedwab and Herbert Yoskowitz.
