A Seal Upon the Heart


“A Seal Upon the Heart” unfolds the epic story of the First Temple’s demise and the Babylonian Exile, while offering a unique perspective through the eyes of Aliyah, a slavewoman whose remarkable life journey intertwines with that of the influential prophet Jeremiah, marking the genesis of modern Judaism.


How did Judaism become one of the world’s great
ethical and religious systems?
What is behind the ancient enmity between Iraq/Iran
and the rest of the Near East?
How can love transcend the barriers of class and sex,
and the tumult of history?
READ This is the tale of the fall of the First Temple
and the Babylonian Exile—and the
beginning of Judaism as a modern
religion. It’s told by Aliyah, a
slavewoman who knew kings, queens, and
commoners, and whose life was intertwined with
that of the greatest prophet of her time: Jeremiah.

• Mary Rosenbaum writes with elegance and with
verve. Her retelling of Jeremiah’s dramatic story
was as suspenseful as it was enlightening – it kept
even a sinner like myself turning the pages. Dirk
Wittenborn, Fierce People

• A fascinating look at the influence of women in
the shaping of the biblical world and its society
and politics through one woman’s story. Jan
Pottker, Janet and Jackie: The Story of a Mother and Her
Daughter, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
