James H. Grossmann Memorial
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.

Need a Laugh Right About Now?

Bob Mankoff, cartoon editor of The New Yorker for 20 years and the current cartoon and humor editor at Esquire, is one of the nation’s leading commentators and TED talkers on the role of humor in American life.  His memoir How About Never — Is Never Good For You?: My Life In Cartoons was a New York Times bestseller.

Very funny himself, Mankoff will share the New Yorker’s most hilarious cartoons including many in  his new book Have I Got A Cartoon For You!, a compilation of his favorite Jewish cartoons. This event is guaranteed to make you think, then laugh, a lot.

You’ll leave with a smile and a book (which you may or may not re-gift for Chanukah).

Check In to The Plaza — right here at the JCC!

You are cordially invited to a very posh affair. Experience the Plaza hotel when author Julie Satow regales us with the juicy stories about the residents, guests and various owners of this iconic property. Long the gathering place of socialites, movie stars, tycoons and world leaders, the Plaza came to define our understanding of money and glamour.

Ticket includes a mimosa, brunch bites and a hardcover copy of the book The Plaza: The Secret Life of America’s Most Famous Hotel. Tina Brown raved about it in The New York Times as did reviewers at The Wall Street Journal and NPR.

The favor of a reply is requested by December 1. Register online or call Kathy at 201.408.1454
