Book Discussion Group

November 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

     All Kehilla members are welcome to join us for our customary meetings on the second Monday of the month at 7pm.

Join the Kehilla Book Discussion Group as they discuss Fabulous Small Jews, a collection of short stories by Joseph Epstein.  All Kehilla members are invited to join us for what is usually a scintillating discussion with scrumptious snacks.The stories are “populated by lawyers, professors, scrap-iron dealers, dry cleaners, all men of a certain age who feel themselves adrift in the radically changed values of the day.”

Fireside Room.

Are you looking for other good books with a Jewish theme to read?  The Kehilla Book Discussion Group has been meeting monthly since 2008 and we’ve read quite a few.  Several people have recently asked for some names of books that we are reading so I am going to share some titles with you.  Perhaps you will find something you might enjoy.  Here are twenty to start with:
