Adult Education - Reader's Circle - Monthly Jewish Themed Book Club


The Reader's Circle Book Club continues to meet with a solid core of committed participants who have enthusiasm for sharing wonderful books, many with Jewish themes. We are pleased that in the past seven years, we have grown from a handful of people to a formidable membership. 

We hope you will find the time to read with us -- you will be glad you did! We meet on the first Thursday of each month at 7:30PM in Room 8 of the Andrew Friedland Preschool. For more information, please contact Diane Gess.

Please join us for our first meeting of the new year on October 4th at 7:30PM!


The Betrayers Book Oct4.jpg

In our first meeting of the new year, we will discuss The Betrayers by David Bezmozgis.  This novel gives us one momentous day in the life of Baruch Kotler, a disgraced Israeli politician. When he refuses to back down from a contrary but principled stand regarding the West Bank settlements, his political opponents expose his affair with a mistress decades his junior. He and the fierce young Leora flee the scandal for Yalta, where, in an unexpected turn of events, he comes face-to-face with the former friend who denounced him to the KGB almost 40 years earlier.

If you are interested in participating in focused discussion, lively debate, and some intellectual conversation, please join us - YOU WILL BE VERY GLAD THAT YOU DID!
