The Sisterhood Book Clubs of Congregations B’nai Israel, Etz Chayim, and Shomer Emunim Announce our Joint Summer Book Selection and Discussion.

“The first book from Ruth Bader Ginsburg since becoming a Supreme Court Justice in 1993 – a witty, engaging serious,and playful collection of writing and speeches from the woman who has had a powerful and enduring influence on law, women’s rights, and popular culture.

My Own Words offers Justice Ginsburg on wide-ranging topics, including gender equality, the workways of the Supreme Court, being Jewish, law and lawyers in opera, and the value of looking beyond U.S. shores when interpreting the U. S. Constitution. This is a fascinating glimpse into the life of one of America’s most influential women” [source: Simon & Schuster]”

 We are delighted that Marcy Steingroot will lead the discussion. There are 12 copies of the book in various formats available at the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library plus more than 50 copies available through the Library’s Search Ohio feature.

Complimentary Afternoon Dessert Tea. Please RSVP to Alice Applebaum 419-536-1800 or applebaum.alice@gmail.com by July 6, 2018.

Tuesday, August 28, 2018 – My Jewish year: 18 holidays, one wandering Jew, by Abigail Pogrebin. 

Abigail Pogrebin wanted to understand what had kept these holidays alive and vibrant, some for thousands of years. Her curiosity led her to embark on an entire year of intensive research, observation, and writing about the milestones on the Jewish religious calendar.  (Toledo Lucas County Public Library – 3 copies, Search Ohio features 33 copies).

 

Thank you all for your suggestions.  Happy reading.

 

Carol Richman and Sharon Stein, Coordinators

The books are available through the Toledo Lucas County Public Library and also through its Search Ohio feature. If anyone needs help requesting books, please let either Carol or Sharon know.
