Jewish Book Club

Jewish Book Club

We had a lively meeting (9 of us, but unfortunately missing Laura!) on March 18th.  In addition to the book discussion, Marcia K. shared selections from her Yiddish Radio CD.
 
Locations for upcoming meetings need to be determined based on library availability. We will hope to stick to the 1:30 to 3:30 meeting time. (The May 6 date does conflict with a Tifereth Israel board meeting but other Sundays in May are Mother's Day, Shavuot and Memorial Day.)
 

Our next meeting will be:

May 6th, 1:30-3:30

GERE PUBLIC LIBRARY (56th & Normal):

Bringing of treats is permitted. Also note that this is not intended to be a women's-only group; men are welcome to be part of the group!

Upcoming dates and books:
July 15th,  1:30-3:30 - THE GIRL FROM HUMAN STREET by Roger Cohen
Library availability: 1 book; 2 audio books
 
September 16th, 1:30-3:30 - JUDAS (1959 memoir) by Amos Oz, or any other book(s) by Amos Oz; another highly recommended one is PANTHER IN THE BASEMENT
