Mazel Tov: The Story of My Extraordinary Friendship with an Orthodox Jewish Fami by der Straeten, M van



ISBN: 9781782275268 Category: Tags: , ,


When 20-year-old student J.S. Margot responded to a job advertisement in 1987, little did she know it would open up an entire world. Taking on a challenge six of her fellow students had failed, she agreed to tutor the four children of an intriguing Orthodox Jewish family living in Antwerp’s tight-knit community. Full of funny misunderstandings and unexpected connections, ‘Mazel Tov’ is a heartwarming, provocative and disarmingly honest memoir of navigating clashing cultures and unusual friendships – and of how, where adults build walls, sometimes only children can dissolve them.
