Book Club

September 2019 - August 2020 

We meet in members’ homes the 3rd Wednesday night of every month unless we must accommodate a Holiday or other Temple event.

We read books of Jewish interest and as a group choose books based on the following criteria:

1) Book written by a Jewish author

2) Preferably with Jewish content

3) Available via PBC Library ideally in various formats: hard copy, e-book, audio, large format

4) Available for purchase online or at Barnes & Noble

At our meetings, we usually discuss questions relating to the story and share our reading experience. However, some of our past meetings have also included interactions with the authors themselves, such as Meet the Author with book signings by our own author/congregants and meetings via Skype with other authors.

The dates for the September 2019 - August 2020 are:

9/18/2019, 10/23/2019*, 11/20/2019, 12/18/2019, 1/15/2020, 2/19/2020, 3/18/2020, 4/29/2020*, 5/20/2020, 6/17/2020, 7/15/2020, 8/19/2020 (* Dates to accommodate other Temple events)

We have a book selected and a host for the first date, September 18 (see below). However, we need book recommendations and host volunteers for the rest of the dates through August 2020. Please forward all recommendations and volunteer information to me.

In addition to appearing on the CSK Calendar, news about the Book Club can be found in the weekly Ezine and emails that will be sent out to those on this email.

We look forward to seeing you at our September meeting:
