Discussion Leader: Jill Ratner
Eternal by Lisa Scottoline
Lisa Scottoline offers a sweeping and shattering epic of historical fiction fueled by shocking
true events, the tale of a love triangle that unfolds in the heart of Rome…in the creeping
shadow of fascism.
Unfolding over decades, Eternal is a tale of loyalty and loss, family and food, love and war–
all set in one of the world’s most beautiful cities at its darkest moment. This moving novel
will be forever etched in the hearts and minds of readers.

Wednesday, November 17th at 4:00 PM
Discussion Leader: Debby Schweighardt
An Observant Wife by Naomi Ragen
Naomi Ragen continues the love story between newly observant California-girl Leah and
ultra-Orthodox widower Yaakov from An Unorthodox Match.
In the midst of their heartfelt attempts to reach a balance between their human needs and their
spiritual obligations, the discovery of a secret, forbidden relationship between troubled
teenage daughter Shaindele and a local boy precipitates a maelstrom of life-changing
consequences for all.

Wednesday, December 22nd at 4:00 PM
Discussion Leader: Marlene Herman
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.

CLASSES

MONDAYS AT 10:00 AM

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.

 

Wednesdays at 7:45 PM

NEW CLASS WITH RABBI JAY

On Wednesday Evenings, Beginning, October 6th, just after Maariv (around 7:45) I am doing a weekly Torah class using Rabbi Jonathan Sacks’ book: “Judaism’s Life-Changing Ideas”. In this book he takes the weekly Torah portion and discusses a great idea that he gleans from it. It is an awesome compendium of essays. Join me for each class over the course of the entire year, or join me when you can. I guarantee that the discussions will be interesting and help each of us to see how far reaching our Torah is.

You can purchase the book ahead of time by going to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or by going to Rabbi Sacks’ (Z”L) website. If you do not have the book by the first class, do not worry, I will share PDF’s with you for the first few weeks.

 

Thursdays at 11:00 AM

Thursdays at 2:00 PM

Beginning Hebrew with Ira Morgenthal
