MERCAZ Reads Israel: Catch Up With Our First Book & Get Ready for Our Second Meeting!

This past spring, MERCAZ USA launched our online book club, MERCAZ Reads Israel. MERCAZ Reads Israel is an opportunity for lovers of books and Israel to read literature from contemporary Israeli authors. Our goal is to select books that provide insights to, and understanding of, the lives and concerns of our Israeli counterparts.

If you missed participating in our first book club meeting on June 2 with author Avigail Graetz, discussing her book “A Rabbi’s Daughter,” you can catch up here:

And we have officially announced the next book for our club …

If All the Seas Were Ink: A Memoir by author Ilana Kurshan

Our next book club meeting to discuss “If All the Seas Were Ink: A Memoir” with author Ilana Kurshan will be held in late August or early September.

Join our club home on Facebook to be the first to know when the date for our next meeting has been set, and to get a head start on the discussion questions when they are posted later this summer!

In the meantime, you can purchase the book on Amazon (Kindle, paperback, or hardback) and begin enjoying our second MERCAZ Reads Israel book club selection today!

For background on the book, watch this ELI Talks presentation from author Ilana Kurshan, where she discusses the motivation for writing her memoir.
