Lovers: A Midrash

In New York a woman becomes obsessed with a musician in her husband’s orchestra; in London, various men reply to an ad offering sexual favours in exchange for wining and dining; in Jerusalem a Jewish woman falls passionately in love with an Arab student. Meanwhile in the House of Study, Rav Huna’s son drifts away from his father’s pursuit of midrash, and sets his eyes on other objects of desire, including his handsome friend Resh Laqish.
