On Thursday, June 19 at 12 noon, Deborah Feldman, author of Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots, will discuss her experience growing up – and then abandoning – her Hasidic community of Satmar in Williamsburg in 2012. The talk is hosted by United Jewish Federation of Greater Stamford. Feldman was 25 years old when she published her New York Times bestselling memoir, which was subsequently adapted as a limited series for Netflix, airing on the platform worldwide in March 2020. Today, Feldman lives in Berlin, German with her 14-year-old son. Her book has been translated into 18 languages. She is currently at work on her first German-language novel.
