TBA Book Group with Rabbi Kulwin
October 4, 2018 , 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Twenty years ago, a group of Temple members, led by Rabbi Kulwin, began reading together. Since then, the members of the TBA Book Group have read over 250 books together, and continue to read and discuss (and argue!) with enthusiasm and enjoyment. If you like to read, join us! Book Group members know that modern Jewish fiction falls mainly into three categories: books about Israel, books about the Holocaust and books about Jewish life in the Diaspora. In our twentieth year, we read works from each: Some are classics and some are new, and some approach their subject in unusual ways. The first book in this year’s series is Esau by Meir Shalev The Biblical rivalry of Jacob and Esau is the opening through which Shalev, one of Israel’s most celebrated novelists, chronicles the multi-generational Levi family, all bakers, from World War I through the mid-seventies. The twins have to share one pair of glasses; quite literally, they are the lens through which the story is told. Free and open to the community. Register online www.tbanj.org or 973.994.2290.
