Book Club

The Jewish Center's Book Club reads and discusses books of  Jewish interest.

The group meets usually on the third Tuesday of the month.   Relax with a good book -- and then join us for a lively and engaging discussion.  Anyone is welcome to participate, whether you enjoyed the book or not  even if you haven't finished it.

Multiple copies of our selections are usually available at the Princeton Public Library on the "Book Club" table. Or you can purchase the book from Amazon. Every time you go to Amazon from our website, The Jewish Center earns up to 15% of each sale.


See the list of previous selections for a taste of the types of books we discuss.

Upcoming Selections

Greetings Readers!

Apologies if this month's email seems a bit subdued. I am still wrapping my head around the sudden death of Rabbi Feldman.
Our next TJC Book Club meeting will be on the third Tuesday, January 21, at 7:30pm. We are currently scheduled to meet in the TJC Beit Midrash (that is the small chapel), but stay tuned and be flexible.  We meet this month to discuss:
  The Only Woman in the Room by Marie Benedict
This month's selection is a fictionalized biography of the glamorous and brilliant Hedy Lamarr. (Not sure why anyone would want to fictionalize her history - Hedy Lamarr's life was indeed dramatic and thrilling - but I suppose if one wants to fill in dialog and details, then it must be written as fiction.)
For future planning, save these dates and read these books:
     February 18 --  Mrs. Everything  by Jennifer Weiner
     March 17 --   A Guide for the Perplexed  by Dara Horn
     April 21 --    Uprooting the Poison Tree  by  Myra Weiner
