Jewish Literary Circle, one of the Life Long Learning programs, meets the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6:15pm. Our focus is to read Jewish literature and other published materials and enjoy each other’s insights and have lively discussions. 

Recently we hosted Liz Fox, author of “We Are Going to Be Lucky”. Through letters her parents wrote to each other, she tells the story of a first-generation Jewish American couple who are separated by war. Liz described how she assembled the letters and she and her husband did a reading for us. 

Our thanks and well wishes to Marian McKenna who has ably led the group. She and her husband, Greg, have moved east to be near her Mom. Sandy Sidorsky will now be leading the group. 

Upcoming sessions are:
