Asher Lev is an artist who is compulsively driven to render the world he sees and feels, even when it leads him to blasphemy. He grows up in a cloistered Hasidic community in postwar Brooklyn, a world suffused by ritual and revolving around a charismatic Rebbe. But in time, his artistic gift threatens to estrange him from that world and the parents he adores. As it follows his struggle, My Name Is Asher Lev becomes a luminous portrait of the artist, by turns heartbreaking and exultant, a modern classic.

On April 4 Rabbi Barbara Symons of Temple David will lead two discussions of My Name Is Asher Lev in MPL’s Gallery Space — a morning discussion at 10:00 a.m. and an evening discussion at 7:00 p.m. The discussions are free and open to the public. Please join us!
