An exciting in-person Temple Israel Book Club will feature local author and attorney Michael Davidow Dec. 15 at 7 p.m. at Temple Israel Synagogue in Manchester.
Davidow will discuss his latest book, “The Hunter of Talyashevka.” The conversation will continue after over coffee and desserts.
Davidow writes the column Radio Free New Hampshire for InDepthNH.org. They are archived here: https://indepthnh.org/series/radio/
Quoting parts of Monica West’s review from InDepthNH.org, “The Hunter of Talyashevka is a most interesting read. It is basically a story of the history of the Jewish faith within the confines of Russia in 1926. Author Michael Davidow draws on his very considerable knowledge of history and religion to tell the story of the Jews in Russia at that time and an American journalist who travels to Kiev in search of film locations.”
Davidow was born in Boston and raised in Manchester. He graduated from the Johns Hopkins University and the University of Michigan School of Law. After working in both Boston and Washington, D.C., he returned to New Hampshire, where he practices criminal defense. He and his wife Catherine have one son.
The temple is located at 66 Salmon St. in Manchester.
