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 together for a day of laughs, lunch and loads of inspiration as three female authors share their ideas.

LISA KOHN: To the Moon and Back: A Childhood Under the Influence 
The best seats Lisa Kohn ever had at Madison Square Garden were at her mother’s mass wedding with the Unification Church (“the Moonies”). The best cocaine she ever had was from her father’s friend, the judge. This is Lisa Kohn’s story of breaking free from her damaging childhood, finding her inner strength and cultivating her self-worth.

JENNIFER CODY EPSTEIN: Wunderland 
The author of the international bestseller The Painter from Shanghai now gives us Wunderland, a gripping novel that tells the story of friendship, betrayal and how ordinary people, lured by the enticement of nationalism, are led willingly into acts of inhumanity. This book has haunting parallels to today’s political climate.

JEAN HANNAH EDELSTEIN: This Really Isn’t About You 
After living abroad her whole adult life, Edelstein came back to the US to be with her cancer-ridden father. Soon after he died, she learned she had inherited the gene that determined his fate. Heartbreaking, hopeful, and really, really funny, this is a book about finding your way in life even when life has other plans. 

Hear the voices of three strong women with unique stories to tell. Audacious and tenacious, these women will engage, enlighten and entertain.
