Imagine turning 40 and being afraid to drive on the highway. Being afraid of the freedom that might bring. Afraid of breaking with a strict religious tradition in which you grew up. Tova Mirvis did just that. Married at 22 to a man she dated for just 12 weeks, Mirvis knew she risked leaving everything behind—including her identity as a mother and a community member-- if she walked away from her tightly knit Orthodox jewish community. But she did it and wrote the book, “The Book of Separation” (https://amzn.to/2C3yGuE). Mirvis explains to CoveyClub founder Lesley Jane Seymour: “What happens when you reach a change moment—it feels like you’re jumping off a skyscraper,” she says.
