“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. 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 12:15pm). 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.
