An Observant Wife by Naomi Ragen
Naomi Ragen continues the love story between newly observant California-girl Leah and

Last Summer at the Golden Hotel by Elyssa Friedland
In its heyday, The Golden Hotel was the crown jewel of the hotter-than-hot Catskills vacation
scene. For more than sixty years, the Goldman and Weingold families – best friends and
business partners – have presided over this glamorous resort which served as a second home
for well-heeled guests and celebrities. But the Catskills are not what they used to be.
Long-buried secrets emerge, new dramas and financial scandal erupt, and everyone from the
traditional grandparents to the millennial grandchildren wants a say in the hotel’s future.
Business and pleasure clash in this fast-paced, hilarious, nostalgia-filled story, where the hotel owners
rediscover the magic of a bygone era of nonstop fun even as they grapple with what may be their last resort.

FOUNDATION TO A THOUGHTFUL JUDAISM
From the Hartman Institute: This groundbreaking, pluralistic curriculum grew out of an interest in sharing ideas that have been taught to rabbis at the Hartman Institute for decades and is designed to give even beginners access to deep Jewish thought. This sophisticated curriculum is not a ‘how-to’ Judaism 101 course but can serve as a complement forlearners interested in grappling with philosophical questions on Jewish peoplehood, faith, ethics, and practice that are at the heart of Jewish tradition.
