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.

Jewish Book Month programs are supported in part by the James H. Grossmann Memorial Endowment Fund for the Celebration of Jewish Book Month and the Kurt & Henry Mahler Fund for Jewish Book Month.

Here and There: Leaving, Chasidism, Keeping My Faith

Chaya Deitsch, author of Here and There, grew up in a warm Lubavitcher clan in 1970s in Connecticut, but chafed under the restrictions of her tradition, particularly as a female longing to be part of the broader culture. Come hear her share her experiences of finding her own path in the secular world (including making it to Barnard College) without severing her ties from the family she loved.
