Being Rina: The Collected Writings of Rina Wolfson

Jewish Literary Foundation presents Book Week 24

Speakers BZ Gillinsky, Paul Harris
Chair Keren David

 An edited collection of the writings of Rina Wolfson, from her cancer diary to her JC Secret Shulgoer column.


Rina Wolfson was a gifted writer, whose writing made us laugh, learn, and cry. Writing on topics ranging from the parsha to parenting, from Talmud to chemotherapy, Rina’s work is a reminder of her inimitable voice. Rina’s husband Paul Harris and son BZ Gilinsky, in conversation with journalist, author and The Jewish Chronicle managing editor Keren David, discuss their edited collection of Rina’s writing, from her blog entitled Nobody needs another cancer diary, to her hugely popular Jewish Chronicle column, Secret Shulgoer.

This event will last approximately 1 hour, without an interval.
