Orphan #8: A Novel 

by Kim van Alkemade

This stunning new historical novel, inspired by true events, tells the fascinating story of a woman who must choose between revenge and mercy when she encounters the doctor who subjected her to dangerous medical experiments in a New York City Jewish orphanage years before.We will have copies of this book available from the San Francisco Jewish Community Library at the December meeting.

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

If you’re 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:
