Teaser Tuesday


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
It was the festival of Simhat Torah, the celebration of receiving the law, when the silk curtains with the Hebrew letters were pulled aside, the doors of the ark opened by the highest bidder, and the ornamental caskets of the Torah brought out, cleaned, aired and carried around the synagogue by men dancing around the Teva. It was a night of fun, frolic, and food, which usually ended with a fancy dress competition.

From Shalom India Housing Society, by Esther David, a comic novel about the Bene Israel community in India and the Prophet Elijah.
