In the Heart of the Seas follows Hananiah, along with many rabbis and their wives, on a spiritual journey to Palestine. The trip is a test of courage and mirrors the daily trials and experiences of modern existence, yet yields renewed faith.
Shmuel Yosef Agnon (18881970) was born in Buczacz, Galicia, the village described in his novel In the Heart of the Seas. He became one of the best-known Hebrew writers in the world and was the first Hebrew writer awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, in 1966.
