Ruchama King Feuerman

In the Courtyard of the KabbalistRuchama King Feuerman lived and taught in Israel for ten years. Seven Blessings (St. Martin’s Press), her celebrated novel about match-making, earned her the praise of the New York Times and the Dallas Morning News, and Kirkus Reviews dubbed her the “Jewish Jane Austen.” She wrote her newly released novel, In the Courtyard of the Kabbalist (New York Review of Books) with the help of grants from the Christopher Isherwood Foundation and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. Her stories and essays have appeared in many Jewish and national publications, including the New York Times, where she was hailed for her ability to “capture the subtlety and magic of {the Torah’s] traditions.”  She lives in New Jersey with her husband and children and has been developing writers for the past twenty years.  To have Ruchama speak in your community about her new novel, please contact her at ruchamakf@gmail.com
