09/26/2017 - TJC Book Club - "The Golem and the Jinni" by Helene Wecker

We will meet on Tuesday, September 26, at 7:30 p.m. in the Beit Midrash to discuss The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker. The book tells of a chance meeting between a golem brought to life by a disgraced rabbi and a jinni, born in Syria, trapped in a flask and released in New York City at the turn of the twentieth century. Amazon says the book “weaves strands of Yiddish and Middle Eastern literature, historical fiction and magical fable into a wondrously inventive and unforgettable tale.”

All of our books can be ordered on-line through TJC website at where you can click on the Amazon link to earn a commission for the Synagogue. Multiple copies of our selections are also available at the Princeton Public Library on the “Book Club” shelves. For a list of previous books or more information, please contact Donna Gabai at
