A Fun Evening for Lilith Salon Participants:
Sincere thanks to Kim Strausser for her warm and gracious hospitality in hosting “Lilith in the Sukkah” last Thursday!
To follow are Kim’s highlights from the event:
Thursday evening, nine “sisters” gathered in a Sukkah and shared a meal and interesting discussion. When the chilly evening air chased them indoors, Lisa, Shelly. Beth, Amy, Beth, Shelly, Lynn, and Rebecca sat in Kim’s living room while Lisa led the discussion about three articles from the Lilith Magazine dealing with identity, breaking free of parental expectations and rediscovering Judaism. Beet salad, tuna mousse, pasta, hummus and crackers and sweets were noshed and enjoyed. Thanks for coming!

Book Selection: Guide For The Perplexed, by Dara Horn
All are welcome! Please join Rebecca Egolf, an veteran book reviewer and discussion leader, for a conversation about the newest book by one of today’s best Jewish novelists. Guide For The Perplexed is a novel about how technology changes memory and how memory shapes the soul, combining fictional modern characters with real historic figures and events.
About the book:
Software prodigy Josie Ashkenazi has invented an app that records everything its users do. When an Egyptian library invites her to visit as a consultant, her jealous sister Judith persuades her to go. But in Egypt’s post-revolutionary chaos, Josie is abducted—leaving Judith free to take over Josie’s life at home, including her husband and daughter, while Josie’s talent for preserving memories becomes a surprising test of her empathy and her only means of escape.
A century earlier, another traveler arrives in Egypt: Solomon Schechter, a Cambridge professor hunting for a medieval archive hidden in a Cairo synagogue. Both he and Josie are haunted by the work of the medieval philosopher Moses Maimonides, a doctor and rationalist who sought to reconcile faith and science, destiny and free will. But what Schechter finds, as he tracks down the remnants of a thousand-year-old community’s once-vibrant life, will reveal the power and perils of what Josie’s ingenious work brings into being: a world where nothing is ever forgotten.
An engrossing adventure that intertwines stories from Genesis, medieval philosophy, and the digital frontier, A Guide for the Perplexed is a novel of profound inner meaning and astonishing imagination.
