Hutchison Street : a novel / Abla Farhoud ; translation by Judith Weisz Woodsworth.
Abla Farhoud 1945- authorBook
"Moishe, an Orthodox Jew and refugee from Russia, is raising his grandson, Aaron, alone in Montreal. Moishe works as a tailor, maintains his strict adherence to Orthodoxy, and educates Aaron to follow in his path. Aaron becomes increasingly estranged from his grandfather, however, and his meeting with the militantly secular Jewish girl Viedna confirms his decision to embrace modernity and materialism and to reject his faith entirely. The story portrays a tragically polarized situation in which neither side is able to communicate or to build an alternative world view that incorporates both tradition and modernity."--Back cover.
