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.

Looking for something good to read this summer? Here's what the Bookhers are reading

The Art of Leaving: A Memoir by Ayelet Tsabari

In The Art of Leaving, Tsabari tells her story, from her early love of writing and words, to her rebellion during her mandatory service in the Israeli army, from her travels from Israel to New York, Canada, Thailand, and India, to her struggle to define herself as a writer in a new language, and to finally her rediscovery and embrace of her family history-a history marked by generations of headstrong women who struggled to choose between their hearts and their homes. With fierce, emotional prose, Ayelet Tsabari crafts a beautiful meditation about the lengths we will travel to try to escape our grief, the universal search to find a place where we belong, and the sense of home we eventually find within ourselves.

AND

More Stories from My Father's Court by Isaac Bashevis Singer

Originally published in Yiddish in the Daily Forward, these stories depict the bet din in I. B. Singer's father's home on Krochmalna Street in Warsaw in the early 1900's. A unique institution, the bet din was a combined court of law, synagogue, scholarly institution, and psychologist's office where people sought out the advice and counsel of a neighborhood rabbi. The twenty-seven stories gathered here show this world as it appeared to a young boy. From the earthy to the ethereal, these stories provide an intimate and powerful evocation of a bygone world.

Join us to discuss The Art of Leaving and More Stories from My Father's Court on Wednesday, 4th September at 7:30pm in the Rabbi's flat.
