Book Club


The Jewish Center's Book Club reads and discusses books of  Jewish interest.

The group meets usually on the third Tuesday of the month.   Relax with a good book -- and then join us for a lively and engaging discussion.  Anyone is welcome to participate, whether you enjoyed the book or not  even if you haven't finished it.

Multiple copies of our selections are usually available at the Princeton Public Library on the "Book Club" table. Or you can purchase the book from Amazon. Every time you go to Amazon from our website, The Jewish Center earns up to 15% of each sale.

Greetings Fellow Readers!

Our TJC Book Club will plan to meet via Zoom again this month.  I will email appropriate instructions a couple of days before the meeting, and again on Tuesday, November 17 (half an hour before our scheduled start time).

This month we will meet on the third Tuesday, November 17, at 7:30pm to discuss the novel
      
  The World That We Knew by Alice Hoffman


"To fight what was wicked, magic and faith were needed. This is what one must turn to when there was no other option.” Come discuss with us the novel that the NY Times book review described as a mixture of "brutal realities" and "magical realism."

And, thank you, Louise, for this bonus: a link to the information for  https://gsa.rutgers.edu/2020/11/the-annual-rutgers-virtual-jewish-film-festival-november-8-through-22-2020/ which has gone virtual this year. No driving! No parking worries!

Looking ahead:

December 15 -- Paris in the Present Tense by Mark Helprin
