about

A fascinating narrative of community and faith, Charles London’s Far From Zion explores the Jewish Diaspora in some of the most unexpected places—from <_st13a_country-region _w3a_st="on">Burma to <_st13a_city _w3a_st="on">Tehran to <_st13a_country-region _w3a_st="on">Cuba and even <_st13a_place _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_city _w3a_st="on">Bentonville, <_st13a_state _w3a_st="on">Arkansas. The award-winning author of the highly acclaimed One Day the Soldiers Came, London tells the stories of the Jews who stayed behind, choosing to remain in the countries of their birth rather than immigrating to the Holy Land of Israel. At once a riveting modern history of a scattered People of the Book and <_st13a_city _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">London’s moving story of his own personal odyssey of religious and cultural discovery, Far From Zion is an affecting and unforgettable study of diversity, tenacity, survival, and rebirth. <_o3a_p>
