“If I have to read one more headline,” Dina Rabinovitch writes to a friend, “announcing that the cure for cancer is only years away, I may just scream and scream.” Dina, from a long line of Lithuanian Mitnagdim, grew up in a Judaism of rigorous thinking and demanding scepticism. When diagnosed with breast cancer, she found out that she also comes from a family riddled with cancer. Her book, Take off Your Party Dress, describes the clash of cultures when Jewish mom meets chemotherapy.
