Upcoming Topics:

  • May 19                Last Summer at the Golden Hotel by Elyssa Friedland
  • June 16                To Repair a Broken World, The Story of Henrietta Szold by Dvorah HaCohen
  • July 21                  Aperirogon by Colum McCann

In May we will be meeting in person and on Zoom.  We have changed the selection and the new book is, “Last Summer at the Golden Hotel” by Elyssa Friedland.  This is lighthearted reminiscence of a family-owned Catskill Hotel and the demise of that “scene”.  For many it will be bring memories of summer’s past and for others a glimpse of what it was like in the Catskills.  Part of our discussion will include (if you wish) a short description of a summertime memory from your childhood.

In June we will be discussing, “To Repair a Broken World, The Story of Henrietta Szold” by Devorah HaCohen, who is a noted historian and captures the dramatic life of this remarkable woman.  Henrietta was a pioneer in the fight for women’s place in Judaism, bringing health and educational systems to mandate Palestine, and being instrumental in advancing the Zionist cause in America in the early 1900’s.  The author focuses on one of Henrietta’s most treasured accomplishments, the establishment of Hadassah Youth Villages in 1934 that took in children fleeing Nazi tyranny.  Now 112 years after the founding of Hadassah, those same Villages are taking in children fleeing from the invasion of Ukraine. 

There will be a Planning Meeting  on Thursday, June 2 at 4:30 pm. We will be discussing and selecting books for July through December.  In advance of the meeting, there will be a form available that you can use to submit suggestions. If you would like to participate in the planning meeting, please contact group leader Sandy at scsidorsky@comcast.net.
