Book Club

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

Our Book Club usually meets on the third Tuesday of the month.   Relax with a good book — and then join us for a lively and engaging discussion.  Everyone is welcome to participate, whether you enjoyed the book or not, and even if you haven’t finished it.

Multiple copies of our selections are usually available at the Princeton Public Library on the “Book Club” shelves.  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.

Tuesday, March 21, at 7:30 p.m. via Zoom.

In “Origin,” the brash futurist Edmond Kirsch comes up with a theory so bold, so daring that, as he modestly thinks to himself in Brown’s beloved italics, “It will not shake your foundations. It will shatter them.” Kirsch is of course addressing The World, because that’s the scale on which Brown writes.  (New York Times)

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

April 25 – Mr. Perfect on Paper by Jean Meltzer

May 16 – Run You Down by Julia Dahl

As usual, all of our books can be ordered online and you can click on the Amazon Smile link to choose us as your charity, and earn a commission for the Synagogue:
