Jews and Words by Amos Oz and Fania Oz-Salzberger

Why are words so important to so many Jews? Novelist Amos Oz and historian Fania Oz-Salzberger roam the gamut of Jewish history to explain the integral relationship of Jews and words. Through a blend of storytelling and scholarship, conversation and argument, father and daughter tell the tales behind Judaism's most enduring names, adages, disputes, texts, and quips. These words, they argue, compose the chain connecting Abraham with the Jews of every subsequent generation.

Moderated by Sharon DeLevie

TBA Book Club: Morning group will meet Friday, July 10

My Mother's Son by David Hirshberg

"The story is told by a radio raconteur revisiting his past in post-WWII Boston.... From the opening line of the book, 'When you're a kid, they don't always tell you the truth.', the stage is set for this riveting coming-of-age story that plays out against a backdrop of the Korean War, the aftermath of the Holocaust, the polio epidemic, the relocation of a baseball team, and the shenanigans of politicians and businessmen. Hirshberg deftly weaves together events, characters, and clues and creates a rich tapestry of betrayal, persecution, death, loyalty, and unconditional love that resonates with today's America."  (From the inside flap of the book cover.)

Moderated by Linda Gerstman

Both sessions: Guests: $2.00; free to TBA members

Those who wish to eat something before services, should feel free to bring something for themselves. Please be aware of Temple Beth Abraham’s kashrut (kosher) policy.  Since we do not allow both meat and dairy at the same event, we ask that you bring only DAIRY (contains milk) or PAREVE (neither dairy nor meat, e.g., vegetarian) items.

For those who want or want to provide a snack to share, that is welcome, but it should be pareve.
