MCJC Book Club To Explore What It Means To Be Jewish In Modern Day New York

On Thursday, May 30 at 7:00 pm, the MCJC Book Club will meet to discuss My Jewish Year by Abigail Pogrebin.

Although she grew up following some holiday rituals, Pogrebin realized how little she knew about their foundational purpose and contemporary relevance. She wanted to understand what had kept these holidays alive and vibrant, and chronicles her journey into the spiritual heart of Judaism in this captivating, educational, and inspiring memoir.

All are welcome to participate in the Book Club at any time. Rachel Kamin, director of the cultural and learning center at North Suburban Synagogue Beth-El, facilitates all discussions.

We encourage participants to make a donation of $36 to MCJC to help cover the cost of the facilitator. For more information, contact Rita Janowitz at
