Book Club

*Please note that we usually meet in members’ homes about the 3rd Wednesday night of every month unless we must accommodate a Holiday or other Temple event.  However, Due to COVID-19 we are currently conducting all events on Zoom. Please email Bonnie at mplbonnie@aol.com to be added to the email list and for Zoom details.

In the Sisterhood Book Club, we read books of Jewish interest and as a group, we 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.

Here is the Book Club Calendar. All events take place at 7:30 PM.
