Book Discussion Group

August 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.

At our meeting on August 13th we will be discussing The English Teacher by Yiftach Reicher Atir, an Israeli spy thriller focusing on the inner workings of the Mossad and the impact it has on one undercover operative in an Arab country.

This is the last book in our current cycle of books. In September we will vote to select books for the rest of this year and the beginning of next year.

All Kehilla members interested in joining the book group are invited to nominate books and help us make the selection.

For more information about the Book Group, contact Terry at mcglynnmandel@gmail.com.
