This novel "unflinchingly confronts the issue of Jewish continuity in a diverse and changing America" (Anne Roiphe, author and journalist). Feminist icon Letty Cottin Pogrebin's second novel is the story of Zach Levy, the left-leaning son of Holocaust survivors who promises his mother on her deathbed that he will marry within the tribe and raise Jewish children. When he falls for Cleo Scott, an African American activist grappling with her own inherited trauma, he must reconcile his old vow to the family he loves with the present reality of the woman who may be his soul mate. A New York love story complicated by the legacies and modern tensions of Jewish American and African American history, Single Jewish Male Seeking Soul Mate explores what happens when the heart runs counter to politics, history, and the compelling weight of tradition. "A beautifully written and heartwarming masterpiece." -Menachem Z. Rosensaft, founding chair of the International Network of Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors "Cleareyed, courageous." -Kirkus Reviews
