UJC BOOK GROUP - THE BOOKHERS


The UJC’s Book Group, The Bookhers is for anyone who likes to read and discuss Jewish books — fiction, memoir, biography — it will be up to the group to select. And of course, we’ll have a nosh too.

The UJC Bookhers will meet on Wednesday, 3rd April at 7:30pm in the Rabbi's Flat. We'll be discussing The Chosen by Chaim Potok.

Set against the backdrop of WWII and the creation of the state of Israel, The Chosen is a poignant novel about transformation and tradition, growing up and growing wise, and finding yourself-even if that might mean leaving your community.

A coming-of-age classic about two Jewish boys growing up in Brooklyn in the 1940s, this "profound and universal" story of what we share across cultures remains deeply pertinent today - The Wall Street Journal.

To help us plan, please RSVP to The UJC office by Tuesday, 2nd April.
