Author Leah Lax talks about the journey of being a cultural immigrant in her own country. Her brave memoir Uncovered: How I Left Hassidic Life and Finally Came Home tells how she left the Hassidic lifestyle after three decades.
Lax says, "My memoir, Uncovered, is about falling into Hassidic life as a young teen and leaving it at a run in my more-conscious forties. While writing that book, I was fascinated with the intertwining of sexuality with one’s spiritual sense. Both go to the core of who we are. Both can trigger passion and desire and need."
