People of the Book Club

Portrait of a Spy, The Paris Architect, The Human Stain, The Outskirts of Hope - these are some of the books we have read. At the Jewish Federation’s People of the Book Club, we read and discuss a variety of books; fiction and non-fiction as well as American and Israeli authors. What is a Jewish book? One that pertains to the Jewish experience. 

The Jewish Federation is not convening people during the pandemic; for the time being the Jewish Book Club will meet virtually via Zoom. All Jewish Book Club sessions will be held at 1 p.m.
