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.

Upcoming Selections


Greetings Readers!
 
Chocolate has a Jewish connection? Absolutely!
 
Our next TJC Book Club meeting will be on the third Tuesday, November 19, 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:
 
Deborah Prinz's "On the Chocolate Trail"

 
(Note: TJC office has some copies of "On the Chocolate Trail" for sale.)
 
Rabbi Prinz presents religious and cultural connections in her history of the trade, retail and manufacture of chocolate since its introduction to Europe. Come discuss this sweet collection of confection connections. (Sorry - I cannot resist alliteration any better than I can resist chocolate.)
 
For future planning, save these dates and read these books:
 
     November 19 -- Deborah Prinz's "On the Chocolate Trail"
 
     December 17 -- Rebecca Makkai's "The Great Believers"
 
     January 21 -- Marie Benedict's "The Only Woman in the Room"
