Mazel Tov : The Story of My Extraordinary Friendship with an Orthodox Jewish Family
'An exceptional voice, illuminating a section of society rarely seen in a refreshingly frank manner' Deborah Feldman, author of Unorthodox, inspiration for the Netflix series
When 20-year-old student J. S. Margot took a tutoring job with an Orthodox Jewish family, little did she know it would open up an entire world.
In their household she would encounter endless rules and quirks she had never seen before. By turns puzzled and angered, she taught the children and fiercely debated with the family, before gradually beginning to learn from them.
Full of funny misunderstandings and unexpected connections, Mazel Tov is a disarmingly honest memoir of clashing cultures and unusual friendships - and of how, where adults build walls, sometimes only children can tear them down.
