The Co-Ed Book Club is currently voting for next season’s reading list. Of the twenty nine books to be voted on are a history of Israeli politics and stories of Jews from Russia, Hungary and France. There are two biographies of Menachim Schneerson and mysteries with NYC, Iran, the Palestinian Territories, Yemen, Israel, Egypt and Johannesburg as some of the fictional settings. Included are Jewish folktales, historical fantasy, a Palestinian travelogue, World War II stories and much more. It will certainly be a season of varied and interesting reading for the group. Meetings are from October through May on the second Thursday of the month. We welcome new readers–-the more opinions the better! For more information contact Sandy Epstein at [email protected].

It is never too late to pay your JFG membership dues and rejoin. Checks in the amount of $15 per person should be sent to Laurie Colen at 63845 E. Orangewood Lane.

We count on your support and encourage you to join our regular activities which are solely intended to encourage and enable the extension of Jewish friendships throughout SaddleBrooke. Please feel free to make your suggestions known to Steve or Sy in the hopes that we can work together to enhance the nature and meaning of Jewish friendship in the future.
