In her fifth novel “Eternal Life,” Dara Horn introduces us to Rachel, a mother and grandmother with quite a story to tell—Rachel is 2,000 years old and cannot die. In this beautifully written story of love, family, regret and resilience, we follow Rachel and learn with her about the nature of life and death, the power of family and community and the struggles of living through the breadth of two millennia of Jewish history.


Clearly “Eternal Life” is sure to stimulate a panoply of meaningful conversations. To help you navigate these conversations and more, we created this downloadable resource guide—inside you’ll find background information on the author, a list of book themes, a set of discussion questions and a few historical notes for context.

Enjoy reading, ruminating and discussing! We hope to see you April 2 at Read On for a discussion with Dara Horn herself.
