    eBook Uncovered PDF ↠ Ö adidasspezial.co Ö uncovered epub, Uncovered MOBIThis is a memoir about a woman's experience as part of a Hasidic Ultra Orthodox Jewish community in Texas I was reading it for the book club driving myself to read a certain number of pages per day and get done so I had a sense of obedience and subjecting my will to that of others that let me feel a little of what the author is describing although in my case there were just seven days of 50 pages per day before my obedience this time would be overThis book purports to be a voyage of discovery but to a degree falls into a

    eBook Uncovered PDF ↠ Ö adidasspezial.co Ö uncovered epub, Uncovered MOBII’ve always been curious to read the memoirs of people who leave a fundamental religious group to join the larger population I wonder about what life is like inside those ultra religious communities I also wonder how a person can come to leave everything she has known So when a GR friend listed this book on her “to read” list I contacted my library and reserved a copy This book differs from the others I’ve read in that the author was not born into a family living in a fundamentalist community Leah Lax was born in Texas to a family which was nominally Jewish but primarily secular She rebelled against her own family not because of their religious laxness no pun intended but because of their sever

    eBook Uncovered PDF ↠ Ö adidasspezial.co Ö uncovered epub, Uncovered MOBII truly wanted to like this book But ultimately I couldn't because as the story evolved I found that I really don't care for Ms Lax's attitude Initially it seemed as though she had barely been exposed to a Hassidic lifestyle as a woman from Texas who gets swept in by Chabad Much of her early story is reminiscent of a sociology study I read years ago about the different paths to Judaism that different types of women take “Tradition in a

    eBook Uncovered PDF ↠ Ö adidasspezial.co Ö uncovered epub, Uncovered MOBI Uncovered How I left Hasidic Life and Finally Came Home is a riveting tale of Leah Lax's journey into an ultra Orthodox Jewish sect marriage family and the acknowledgment after years of soul searching and angst that she is a lesbian As a Jewish lesbian myself I couldn't wait to go along with her storyWhat I didn't expect to discover was that she had grown up in Dallas as I had and we both attended the same synagogue although she's a few years older than me and I didn't know her But the familiarity of the story permeated throughout This book was a fascinating glimpse into the world of modern day Hasidism through Leah's eyes Once I start

    eBook Uncovered PDF ↠ Ö adidasspezial.co Ö uncovered epub, Uncovered MOBIUncovered is another memoir in the current trend how I left my religion as it seems to appeal to many readers to want reassurance and encouragement In that regard she succeeds in offering others a way out However she does so by dishonest means All outside characters in her world are one dimensional All her Rabbis are emotionless distant somewhat vengeful obsessed with minutiae All the women in her religious world are shrill and covered each one clearly denying their real true urges She evokes constant imagery of faceless nameless masses denying themselves for the sake of the whole never once wondering whether others felt the same way The truth is that many of these memoirs are similar Person from a very broken home searches for order and meaning dives into perhaps the most extreme form of religion that

    eBook Uncovered PDF ↠ Ö adidasspezial.co Ö uncovered epub, Uncovered MOBIOriginal review at www125pagescomI received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review4 StarsLeah Lax is the perfect Hasidic woman Teaching young believers and speaking at conferences while raising her seven children some would say her life was ideal But as Leah ages she feels less sure of her place in both her life and her religion Taking control of her future is scary heart wrenching and freeing Learning to become true to herself is the heart of this journeyI was initially unsure of a memoir written by an ex Hasidic Jew as that is a religion that does not seem oppressive to me so I feared it would drag However I am glad I read it Leah’s life as it unfolds from a young college student in an arranged marriage to a strong women who follows her heart is a great journey Diving i

    eBook Uncovered PDF ↠ Ö adidasspezial.co Ö uncovered epub, Uncovered MOBIThis is largely about the Hasidic religion and way of life It is a powerful book in which Leah Lax tells us about her choices or lack of them as a wife and mother She enters this way of life as a young adult and brings up 7 children before she finally 'sees the light' or comes home as she puts it Completely 'brainwashed' into following all sorts of reli
