Israel book Club

Thursday, November 18 | 7:00 p.m.

This year, we are starting a temple-wide Israel book group. We will start with best-selling Israeli author Micah Goodman's book The Left, The Right, and the Legacy of the 6-Day War, which has been called "A must-read for anyone who wants to understand the tectonic forces underlying Israeli politics." Next, we will read Colum McCann's New York Times bestseller Apeirogon, the story of a Palestinian father and an Israeli father who both lose a child to the conflict, and though raised to hate one another, come together to use their grief as a weapon for peace. Mark your calendars for discussions about these enlightening books.


Future Dates:

Thursday, January 13: Apeirogeon by Colum McCann
Thursday,  March 10: Israel: A Concise History of a Nation Reborn by Daniel Gordis
Thursday, May 12: In This Place Together: A Palestinian's Journey to Collective Liberation by Penina Eilberg-Schwartz
