Book Club 11/2/2014

The book club had a great discussion of Dara Horn's "Guide for the Perplexed" on November 2. Thanks to Rebecca Egolf for facilitating and to Kim Strausser, Ed Weisman, Jean Beasley, and Mitch Fromm for their vibrant conversation. Special thanks to Simone Fromm for her delicious treats.

The book club's next selection will be "The Wanting", by Michael Lavigne. The discussion is tentatively set for February 1. The central themes of "The Wanting" span decades, countries and narrators and include extremism and terrorism in Israel, Soviet Jewry, and Jewish identity. It examines the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the lens of a Palestinian suicide bomber and his family, and a family of Russian Jewish immigrants involved in a terror attack. Here's the New York Times review:
