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

Our next TJC Book Club meeting will be on the third Tuesday, December 18, at 7:30pm. We are currently scheduled to meet in the TJC Children's Library (that is the small room off the social hall), but stay tuned and be flexible.  Come in from the winter cold and join us to discuss:
Michael Chabon's "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay"
I started reading this epic novel on the train and almost missed my stop, I was so engrossed in the story of these two young men. The themes include the immigrant experience, the early days of super-hero comics, re-inventing oneself - this month's read is a roller-coaster (and I have only read the first 100 pages).

For future planning, save these dates and read these books: 

  •     January 15 -- Gabrielle Zevin's "The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry"
  •     February 19 -- Emily Kaiser Thelin's "Unforgettable: The Bold Flavors of Paula Wolfert's Renegade Life"
  •     March 19 -- Dara Horn's "Eternal Life"

Multiple copies of our selections are available at the Princeton Public Library on the "Book Club" shelves. (NOTE: The fiction Book Club shelves are on the first floor, but the non-fiction Book Club shelves are upstairs on the second floor.)
