Third Fridays Book Club: Exploring Israeli History Through Literature
They say if you want to understand Israel, read its literature. Gather with us on the third Friday of every month in the EDCJCC’s Salzberg Family Library to enjoy lunch and join in discussion, led by EDCJCC CEO Carole Zawatsky, about the complex and vibrant history of modern day Israel through the eyes of its contemporary authors. Together, through literature, we’ll strengthen our connection to Israel and celebrate a shared passion for the written word.

Friday, February 21: Between Friends by Amos Oz, a "gorgeous, rueful collection of eight linked stories capturing the collective dreams of Israel in the 1950s" – Chicago Tribune.
