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. 

Book Club is the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 10:30 a.m. and will be both in-person at the Jewish Federation office and available on Zoom.
