Jewish & Israeli Book Club
June 20, 1 – 2pm
FREE with RSVP
Read and reflect with the JCC’s Jewish & Israeli Book Club. Each season we’ll pick a book to read and discuss while enjoying refreshments and connections with other peers from the community. This summer, we’ll discuss By Fire, By Water, by Mitchell James Kaplan. Set in 15th century Spain, the novel centers on a Jewish convert living in the midst of conflicting religious ideologies in a rapidly changing world. Craig Perry, Assistant Professor or Judaic Studies at the University of Cincinnati, will lead a thought-provoking discussion on Medieval Jewish history and Muslim-Jewish relations.
In partnership with University of Cincinnati – Department of Judaic Studies
