If you haven’t yet seen the fabulousness that is the play, “My Name is Asher Lev,” one word comes to mind… go!
“My Name is Asher Lev” is based on the novel by Chaim Potok and landed the prestigious Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Off-Broadway Play. The show exemplifies the ability of Chaim Potok’s works to address universal concerns, such as the struggles between faith and secularity, tradition and modernity. Potok, who was surprised his first book, The Chosen, became such a massive hit, ultimately sold more than 3 million copies. And he was widely recognized as the first Jewish writer to show others the world of hasidic Jews. Some called him an urban Hemingway.
