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 remaining dates for the September 2019 - August 2020 year are as follows:7/15/2020, 8/19/2020

Previous dates: 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 (* Dates to accommodate other Temple events)
