Join us on Monday, October 8th at 7:30pm at the Temple when we will be discussing A Tale Of Love and Darkness by Amos Oz. 

And then, get ready for our next meeting on December 6th.  We thought something a little bit lighter was in order, so we will be discussing Nuclear Family: A Tragicomic Novel in Letters by Susan Fogel.  This is a comedic novel about a fractured family of New England Jews and their discontents, over the course of three decades. Told entirely in letters to a heroine we never meet, we get to know the Fellers through their check-ins with Julie: their thank-you notes, letters of condolence, family gossip, and good old-fashioned familial passive-aggression.  Together, their missives - some sardonic, others absurd, others heartbreaking - weave a tapestry of a very modern family trying (and often failing) to show one another they care.

ANYONE AND EVERYONE IS WELCOME you don't have to be a woman, just need a desire to talk about great Jewish books!  Join us and see what a fun group of people we are! For more information contact Sheila Pont at
