My Name is Asher Lev

My Name is Asher Lev

Chaim Potok
Po

Asher Lev is a Ladover Hasid who keeps kosher, prays three times a day and believes in the Ribbono Shel Olom, the Master of the Universe. Asher Lev is an artist who is compulsively driven to render the world he sees and feels, even when it leads him to blasphemy. In this stirring and often visionary novel, Chaim Potok traces Asher’s passage between these two identities, the one consecrated to God, the other subject only to the imagination.

"As a young man, I was particularly excited to read this book about a daring young artist breaking from tradition."—Kevin M., TDC Strategist
