7:30 PM - 8:30 PMOak Park Temple


Join us on Monday, May 13th at 7:30pm when we will be discussing We Were the Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter.  It is the spring of 1939 and three generations of the Kurc family are doing their best to live normal lives, even as the shadow of war grows closer. The talk around the family Seder table is of new babies and budding romance, not of the increasing hardships threatening Jews in their hometown of Radom, Poland. But soon the horrors overtaking Europe will become inescapable and the Kurcs will be flung to the far corners of the world, each desperately trying to navigate his or her own path to safety.   Driven by an unwavering will to survive and by the fear that they may never see one another again, the Kurcs must rely on hope, ingenuity, and inner strength to persevere. 
Books will be available at the Oak Park Public Library and at the Temple Library.

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
