Jewish Book Month Celebration

Jewish Book Month speaks to the mission of our Center; to heighten awareness of one's Jewish identity and enrich our Jewish lives. We have always been "the people of the book," and the celebration of Jewish Book Month gives us a wonderful opportunity to transmit our values to the entire community as well as to future generations. The celebration continues throughout the year with programs featuring Jewish authors and books of Jewish interest.

Sunday of Strong Women

Come for a day of laughs, lunch and loads of inspiration as three female authors share their ideas. Hear the voices of three strong women with unique stories to tell. Audacious and tenacious, these women will engage, enlighten and entertain.

Angela Himsel: A River Could Be A Tree  (please note, program change)
One of 11 children raised in a farmhouse in Indiana by parents who followed a cult-like branch of Christianity which espoused a Doomsday philosophy, Himsel thought her chance for salvation was strict adherence to the church. She found, on a trip to Israel, that her real connection to God was through Judaism.

Susie Orman Schnall: The Subway Girls
Based on the Miss Subways contest that ran in New York City from 1941 to 1976, this is the story of two strong women, generations apart, who are up against the same struggles to find the balance between ambition, love and happiness. Schnall is also the author of The Balance Project and On Grace.

Alexandra Silber: White Hot Grief Parade
After the death of her father when she was a teen, Al and her mother needed to figure out how to live the rest of their lives. This book is an ode to friendship and its restorative power and the unbreakable bond, even in death, between father and daughter. Silber is a Broadway actress and Grammy nominated singer. She has been in Fiddler on the Roof, Master Class, She Loves Me and Hello Again.
