As eastern Europe is fractured during World War II the Satmar Rebbe of Transylvania makes a miraculous escape to America and begins building a new community in the Williambsurg neighborhood of Brooklyn New York meanwhile those of his Transylvanian followers who survive the war are dispersed throughout Europe Zalman Stern his wife Hannah and their growing family end up in Paris where they are eventually joined by two young orphans Josef was the only survivor of the brutal murder of his family rescued and raised as her son by their Christian maid several years later Josef rescues Mila after her parents are killed chasing after a train the very train on which the Satmar Rebbe is leaving When both children end up in the care of the Sterns Mila remains with them to be raised as a sister to their eldest daughter Atara while Josef is dispatched to Williamsburg to study with the Rebbe himself Josef and Mila will be reunited a few years later when their marriage is arranged The Sterns daughter Atara will find herself on a different path her curiosity about the secular world surrounding her family in Paris raises uestions she is emphatically discouraged from pursuing but she can t ignore them While Mila and Josef become deeply entrenched in the Satmar way of life Atara will become estranged from itand ultimately from her familyThe title of I Am Forbidden can be interpreted several ways within the context of the novel Women in the Satmar sect are forbidden from furthering their educations or working they have no role outside the family Their most important job is producing children and one of their greatest responsibilities related to that job is the preservation of family purity the rules that govern sexual relations between husbands and wives Sex is for procreation only and a wife must carefully track her cycles There are several days each month when her husband is forbidden to touch her at the end of that time she partakes in a ritual bath and returns home to give her husband a sign that he is now permitted to be with her This permitted time should coincide with her most fertile days and if all goes well she won t have unclean days again for months however pregnancy will make her forbidden again A wife who does not produce children has failed at her job and after ten years her husband may divorce herIt can be hard for a modern woman to understand how any woman in this day and age could accept living like thiswhich is why it s key to understand that living like this is a deliberate rejection of anything modern and can only be perpetuated within a community that chooses to close itself off from the world Exposure to unsanctioned ideas from the outside can raise uestions uestioning can undermine an individual s belief and individual uestioners may ultimately break down a community of believers uestioning is why Atara Stern had to leave her family behindMarkovits has Atara leave the story behind along with her family as the remainder of the novel focuses on Mila Her story is probably interesing from the outside because her life is so unfamiliar but at the same time the narrowness of Mila s life makes her story challenging to tell While Markovits rises to that challenge for the most part when she tries to take Mila out of her life s confines the novel takes a turn that I thought was unfortunately soap operatic Although I continued to be pulled along by the story my appreciation for it diminshed a bit over the last third of the bookAnouk Markovits writing is lovely and she has attempted some ambitious storytelling in I Am Forbidden The novel spans decades and explores a way of life that seems to exist alongside our own time rather than of it It touches on matters historical political and religious while focusing on one family s story I don t think all of it worked but I appreciate it when an author reaches the way this one does and while I didn t find the novel entirely satisfying I did find it consistently engaging interesting and emotionally resonant

And Onan knew that the seed should not be his and it came to pass when he went in unto his brother s wife that he spilled it on the ground lest that he should give seed to his brother Well shit I was totally not expecting that twist at the end KAPOWI gobbled this up in one evening and I don t think it s a novel per se yeah I know that is such a useless categorization when you have books like the Odyssey and David Markson it was like a very long tale by a storyteller or a collection of them It had a real fairytale atmosphere even though it was about horribly modern eventsit s a real hybrid These aren t even criticisms Obviously the book knocked me on my ass and parts of it are beautiful and nearly all the characters are amazing It reminded me a little bit of Briar Rose by Jane Yolen except the focus was all on the womenI do think there was one big structural problem with the book up to A s leaving the family it s pretty much a day by day chronologically intact novel with minute psychological observations and after that BOOM major time skips and the chapters are much shorter the wedding then five years then ten years then R s birth then ten years then R getting married then J s birth and so on I can see why I mean if the entire story was written in the style of that first half it would fill about four volumes WWII and the Holocaust are pretty much giant lacunae which fits the general theme because those would completely drown out the other story I think this narration X begat Y begat Z is also deliberately Biblical and totally in keeping with the idea of survival at any cost the survival of generations of Jews how do you survive as a Jew How does Judaism survive At what point do you stop being Jewish because of the terrible things you have to do to live Is it even possible to make a bargain with God it s easy to imagine the Rebbe or Josef thinking Just this once and I ll confess what I did laterlaterlater and later never comes because confessing what you did would destroy the result the reason why you did itAnyway it s beautifully written and mesmerizing and gripping and even if the structure s wonky and there s some first novel itis there I d buy anything else this author wrote unseen in a heartbeat HEAR THAT

Women s friendshipsMarkovits writes of a Romanian Jewish community during World War II They are from the Satmar sect and have very strict beliefs and traditions There are two sets of parents one trying to flee to safety and another attacked in their home are murdered by fascists Left behind are two children one from each family each is rescued The boy is adopted by the family maid She s a Christian and tries to keep him safe by teaching him to pass by adopting Christianity and pretending to be her own child Though she s misguided she loves him very much The girl is adopted and raised as a devout Jew by her father s Talmud study partner and bought up with his ever growing family in FranceI found the immersion in this uniue culture fascinating but also heartbreaking both because of the World War II atrocities but also because of how unbending and unforgiving the Satmar tradition seems to be I also found this culture extremely loving and caring This contradiction is at the heart of the story I was reminded of Lisa See s Snow Flower and the Secret Fan for two reasons See s book is centered on the very insular Chinese culture of the 19th century which also had very strict traditions and expectations for men and women and their respective roles The second similarity between the stories was the central theme of women s friendships that were formed early and sustained through life s hardships I feel like I m walking a tightrope when I say this but neither the Satmar nor the 19th century Chinese traditions were female hating even though they were dominated by male privilege but they did have unflinching expectationsThe orphan Mila and her adopted sister Atara were of one mind as children but in adulthood their paths forked Each still held the other dear in her heart This is the best part of Markovits s book The women s relationship holds it together and is emotionally affecting The story is told from various viewpoints and from many time periods but it remains clear Markovits is an affecting skilled writer I didn t like the ending it felt forced I loved learning about a culture so different from any I m familiar with The contrast between the rigidity of the Satmar culture and the sweetness of the women s love for one another touched me deeply355
