In this volunteer led group, a different member of the group will lead the discussion of one chapter each month. Discussions are in English and women with any level of Jewish knowledge are welcome. There is no requirement to lead
or host a session, though all are welcome to do so! Sponsored by Temple Aliyah Sisterhood. (The paperback book is published by Jewish Lights Publishing and is available on Amazon and at local bookstores). For further information or to join, contact Carol Kotler at [email protected]

The group meets four times a year for lively and interesting discussions. What a great opportunity to spend time with friends, meet new people, and share your thoughts and interests. No advance sign-up necessary and you can come to one or all of the discussions. This year’s books are The Tin Horse, by Janice Steinberg (October 24); Ways to Disappear, by Idra Novey (December 12); The Last Watchman of Old Cairo: A Novel, by Michael David Lukas (March 13); and a book TBD - any suggestions? - for May 18.
