Join MERCAZ READS ISRAEL, an online book club featuring contemporary Israeli literature that provides insight into and understanding of the lives and concerns of our Israeli counterparts.
This new, exciting initiative is a partnership between Mercaz USA and the Israel Forever Foundation.
Our first selection, ‘A Rabbi’s Daughter,’ a novel by Avigail Graetz, is a semi-autobiographical story of three generations of strong women. Drawing inspiration from the author’s life experience growing up in the south of Israel, in the home of a Masorti (Conservative) rabbi serving a Masorti kehilla, this book is the first Israeli novel set against the background of Masorti Judaism.
On Wednesday, April 22, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. EDT, we will have the opportunity to engage in conversation with the author, Avigail Graetz, via a Zoom conference.
Join us to learn about the background of the book, before you read it!
A second webinar will be scheduled in late May/early June for participants to discuss the book, after they have read it, with the author!
Join our MERCAZ READS ISRAEL Group on Facebook to learn more and participate in book club conversations!
