“Read It & Meet” Book Discussions
Do you have a favorite book you'd like to share … one by a Jewish author or with Jewish content? Our "Read It & Meet" Book Discussions are held once a month and are open to everyone! We discuss selected books and share our experiences, reactions, and ideas. Occasionally, we have an "author-in-residence" as a special guest.
Most book discussions take place Shabbat afternoons (exceptions are noted below) following Kiddush with the congregation (approximately 12:00 noon). Moderators are needed to facilitate each book discussion. If you would like to suggest a book, act as a moderator, or would like more information, please contact Vicki Kaufman or Rayna Gellman.
"Read It & Meet" 2013-14 Planning Meeting – Tuesday, May 14, 12:00pm at Fifth Street Deli (5th St./Rosemont)
Anyone interested in reading, and books with Jewish content or authors, is invited to help us select the
reading list for the coming year’s books. Meet us for lunch at Fifth Street Deli (“dutch treat”).
For more information, contact Evelyn Sigafus.
