The Wall Street Journal: "There is humor and heartbreak in these pages...Ms. Kurshan immerses herself in the demands of daily Talmud study and allows the words of ancient scholars to transform the patterns of her own life."
The Jewish Standard: “Brilliant, beautifully written, sensitive, original."
The Jerusalem Post: "A beautiful and inspiring book. Both religious and secular readers will find themselves immensely moved by [Kurshan's] personal story.”
American Jewish World: “So engrossing I hardly could put it down.”
"Jewish Community of the Palouse (JCP) Sisterhood Book Group. Our first book, If All the Seas Were Ink, was received with a wide range of emotions and an abundance of thought provoking conversation. Many of us in the group are interested in doing our own Daf Yomi and Rabbi Elizabeth Goldstein has just started hers." Warmly, Jesica Sweedler DeHart
