“A bewitching love story that is also an extraordinary portrait of Jerusalem, its faith, spirituality, identity, and kaleidoscope of clashing beliefs. A tour de force. Bravo for Night in Jerusalem.”

— Moshe Mizrahi, Academy Award-winning director, Madame Rosa, Best Foreign Film


“Gaelle Lehrer Kennedy’s Night in Jerusalem is an uncommonly poised and confidently crafted novel, one that echoes the work of Isaac Bashevis Singer in both its poetic simplicity and its consideration of the ways in which ancient law encounters the complexity of contemporary lives . . . a deeply moving love story unlike no other, one whose central characters are beguiling and unpredictable, yet always believable. This is a novel to savor—and to share.”

— Russell Martin, author of Picasso’s War and The Sorrow of Archaeology


“Beautiful and authentic, Gaelle Lehrer Kennedy’s wonderful novel probes the mystical depths of forbidden love set against the Six Day War, and one woman’s quest to break the shackles of tradition and find fulfillment. . . . a truly unique perspective on the power and mystery of ancient and modern Jerusalem.”

— Rabbi Susan Nanus, Wilshire Temple, Los Angeles, California


“Nuanced, sensitive, and always mysterious, Gaelle Lehrer Kennedy’s Night in Jerusalem is a novel that brings Jerusalem vividly to life in a unique moment in its history, yet that also explores timeless passions and truths.”

— Howard Jay Smith, author of Beethoven in Love; Opus 139
