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.

Greetings Fellow Readers!
Our next TJC Book Club meeting will be on Tuesday, May 25.
We’ll be meeting by Zoom to discuss:
Rachel Kadish’s The Weight of Ink
The novel is set in London of the 1660s and of the early twenty-first century, weaving together the stories of two women intimately involved with both the worlds of ideas and of text. Ester Velasquez is a Jewish emigrant from Amsterdam who serves as a scribe for a blind rabbi, just before the plague hits the city; Helen Watt is an ailing historian looking to end her career with a significant find. (JSTOR)
For future planning, save these dates and read these books:
June 15 -- Colum McCann’s Apeirogon
July 20 -- Daniel Silva’s The Order
August 17 -- Rachel Beanland’s Florence Adler Swims Forever
As usual, all of our books can be ordered online and you can click on the synagogue link (below) to find the Amazon link that will earn a commission for the Synagogue:
