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

Tra-la! It's May! (Any Broadway musical fans recognize that line from a "Camelot" song?)
Our next TJC Book Club meeting will be on the third Tuesday, May 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:
Linda Hirshman's "Sisters In Law" 
This dual biography is an admiring look at Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the first two female US Supreme Court justices. The author (who is also a lawyer) compares and contrasts their backgrounds, decisions and paths to seats on the Supreme Court. 
For future planning, save these dates and read these books:  

  •    June 18 -- Nicholas Dawidoff's "The Catcher Was a Spy: The Mysterious Life of Moe Berg"
  •    July 16 -- Summer Potluck and Video, "Itzhak" (Details to be announced)
  •    August 20 -- Daniel Silva's "House of Spies"

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.)
