New Square, NY is only 30 miles from New York City, but its Skeverer Hasidic residents are essentially part of another world. Asking questions is forbidden and considered dangerous, and the outside world is shunned. Shulem Deen was born into this world, but at age 19, started questioning everything about it until his faith completely evaporated and he is forced to leave the only world he’s known. All Who Go Do Not Return is an inspiring, heartbreaking, and reflective memoir of a man struggling to stay true to himself.

The Jewish Kindle Club read All Who Go Do Not Return this month, and hopes that you'll join us on Tuesday evening to hear Shulem Deen speak firsthand about his journey.

We are always taking new members. Contact Jacob Kranitz if you're interested in joining or have questions!
On Tuesday, March 14 at 5:30 PM, author Shulem Deen will discuss his National Jewish Book Award-winning book All Who Go Do Not Return, a sensitive memoir about growing up in and then leaving the community of Skver Hasidim in Rockland County’s New Square, one of the most insular Hasidic groups in the United States.
