Book Group

We have had an active Book Group at Temple Beth Torah for many years. We enthusiastically welcome new participants (men and women).  Currently our meetings are approximately every six weeks, on Monday evenings at TBT starting at 7:00 pm.  We choose eight books each year, mostly fiction but also some non-fiction.  Members select books reviewed in various sources, such as Hadassah Magazine, Moment Magazine, and the Jewish Book Council.  Personal recommendations are welcomed. Fiction and non-fiction books covering a variety of Jewish topics, are considered.  Programs are based on discussion questions supplied by publishers and the Jewish Book Council.  Occasionally participants create their own questions and present additional information about the selected book and/or its author.   We are meeting virtually, please contact Sisterhood for link info at
