Ruchama King Feuerman’s lovely new novel, In the Courtyard of the Kabbalist, is a testament to the power of the imagination in fiction-writing, to break down barriers between different sorts of people and create a new form of connectedness.

Feuerman is able to put her imaginative gloss on places she may never have visited, as well as those she knows well. She creates sympathy for characters from disparate worlds, a rare talent. As an Orthodox Jew she has never been to the Temple Mount, a spot forbidden to those who adhere to her religious tenets, yet she is able to create many believable scenes there.
