“Read It & Meet” Book Discussions

Books in stack

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 usually held once a month and are open to everyone! We discuss selected books and share our experiences, reactions, and ideas.

Most book discussions take place Shabbat afternoons following Kiddush with the congregation (approximately 12:00pm). 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 Rayna Gellman.

Join us for lunch – “Read It and EAT!” (Dutch treat) and help us plan our reading list for the coming year. Let’s share our favorite books by Jewish authors or those that have Jewish content. Or, help add to our list one you may have heard of, but haven’t had a chance to read yet. Plan to bring titles and brief summaries of 2 – 3 books and feel free to bring a friend.
