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 a good read? Check out what The UJC Bookhers are reading.

The Book Smugglers: Partisans, Poets, and the Race to Save Jewish Treasures from the Nazis by David E. Fishman.

The Book Smugglers is the nearly unbelievable true story of Vilna ghetto residents who rescued thousands of rare books and manuscripts-first from the Nazis and then from the Soviets-by hiding them on their bodies, burying them in bunkers, and smuggling them across borders. It is a tale of heroism and resistance, of friendship and romance, and of unwavering devotion-including the readiness to risk one’s life-to literature and art.

AND

The Weight of Ink by Rachel Kadish

Winner of the 2017 National Jewish Book Award

“Kadish positions two women born centuries apart yet united by a thirst for knowledge at the core of a richly textured, addictive novel stretching back and forth through time, from contemporary London to the late seventeenth century....Kadish has fashioned a suspenseful literary tale that serves as a compelling tribute to women across the centuries committed to living, breathing, and celebrating the life of the mind."
—Booklist

Join us to discuss The Book Smugglers and The Weight of Ink in the fall. Exact date TBD.
