In this memoir, journalist Angela Himsel powerfully traces her unlikely journey from her Indiana upbringing in a cult-like Evangelical doomsday sect, to studying in Israel and embracing and converting to Judaism. 

"Told with warmth, humor, and a multitude of religious and philosophical insights, A River Could Be A Tree traces a seemingly impossible journey of faith, family and friendship."   - Gabrielle Selz, Author of Unstill Life



Books can be picked up at USH on Tuesday and Wednesday morning from 10:00-noon at the synagogue. The books will be on a table in the vestibule so you need not enter the synagogue more than a step or two past the front door. 

We are grateful for additional donations towards our cultural programs at USH.  If you would like to make an additional donation, please select "Meistrich Culture Series" and indicate how much you're willing to donate.  Thanks for your help!
