Book Club @ Beth El Congregation

This month, the Book Club will be discussing, The Bridal Chair, by Gloria Goldreich—“The only daughter of Marc Chagall is blossoming in the Paris art world beyond her father’s controlling gaze. But her newfound independence is short-lived. In Nazi-occupied Paris, Chagall’s status as a Jewish artist has made them all targets, yet his devotion to his art blinds him to their danger.” (Goodreads.com)

Read the book and come ready to enjoy an evening discussion with our new moderator, Ileen Bruns. Pizza and wine are available to enjoy for only $5.

Israel in the Media: Beyond the Headlines @ Temple Kol Ami
Sep 14 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee & Temple Kol Ami cordially invite you to Israel in the Media: Beyond the Headlines featuring author and journalist Matti Friedman.

Matti Friedman is the author of Pumpkinflowers: A Soldier’s Story, a war memoir of the often forgotten events that took place in the 1990s at the Pumpkin, a small military outpost in Lebanon. His first book, The Aleppo Codex, won the 2014 Sami Rohr Prize, the American Library Association’s Sophia Brody Medal, the Canadian Jewish Book Award and other honors. It was published in Israel, Australia, Holland, France, Germany, the Czech Republic, Russia and South Korea.

Friedman’s reporting has taken him from Israel to Lebanon, Morocco, Moscow and the Caucasus, and his writing has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post and elsewhere. He is a former Associated Press correspondent and a regular contributor to Tablet Magazine. Two essays he wrote about media coverage of Israel after the 2014 Gaza War, for Tablet and The Atlantic, triggered intense discussion and have been shared together on Facebook more than 100,000 times. He was born in Toronto and lives in Jerusalem.

Join us for a fascinating lecture and discussion at Temple Kol Ami.
