Malkah’s Notebook Discussion and Signing

October 24,, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Montana Book Company - Helena, MT
MJP is excited to partner with Montana Book Company to present this book discussion and signing with author Mira Z. Amiras.
About the book:
Malkah is a child when her father tries teaching her to read Torah. But they don’t get very far. As her questions multiply, she discovers an earlier, hidden story of creation within the Hebrew Aleph-Bet letters in the first line of Genesis. And a door opens. Malkah’s discovery takes her on a lifelong journey in search of her beginnings – into Jewish mystical texts, far-off places, archaeological digs, ancient gods, and ultimately into the nature of existence itself.

About the author:
Mira Z. Amiras, Ph.D. was raised on her mother’s accounts of the Inquisition and Holocaust and her father’s tales of the Hebrew Aleph-Bet letters and their role in the creation of the universe. She has taught Jewish mysticism, magic, and folklore along with many other topics in Jewish and Islamic studies and the anthropology of religion, combining animated film, scholarship, folklore, art, and music to convey concepts that wouldn’t stay put on the chalkboard.
