On the Same Page: A Community Read Featuring Dara Horn, Author of Eternal Life

Macks Center for Jewish Education

Be “on the same page” with the community by reading the same book! Read Eternal Life by Dara Horn, come hear her speak on November 15th, and participate in programs on the theme throughout the year! A project of Macks Center for Jewish Education.

Dara Horn is one of Granta's Best of Young American Novelists. Recognized as "a master storyteller," she has been awarded two National Jewish Book Awards, the Reform Judaism Fiction Prize, the Harold U. Ribalow Prize, and others. The New York Times Book Review has selected several of her books as Editors’ Choices.  

Eternal Life takes the reader on a journey through 2,000 years of Jewish history as Rachel, who makes a spiritual bargain to live forever in order to save the life of her son, outlives her husbands and children for centuries. The story explores "what if" questions about eternal life and eternal love that make us think about human mortality and immortality.

With a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from Harvard University, where she was Visiting Professor of Jewish Studies, Horn draws from her extensive knowledge of and deep appreciation for Jewish history, literature, Hebrew and Yiddish in her works. Horn has also taught Jewish literature and Israeli history at Sarah Lawrence College and City University of New York.
