Zoom Short Story Discussions with Hadassah Friends
June 17 at 11:45AM
In 2021 The Lunch and Learn program changed its name to the SHORT STORY DISCUSSION GROUP.
The group meets on the third Friday of each month, September through July at 11:45AM, via Zoom.
We read stories by American writers as well as stories translated from Yiddish and Hebrew.
At the beginning of each month (except for April) an email will be sent with the date of the meeting and the email address for you to RSVP. Please respond at least two days ahead of the meeting date.
When enough replies are accepted, the story and the Zoom link will be sent to those who have replied in time.
The schedule for the summer will be decided by the group in the July 15 meeting.
PLEASE NOTE: Guests are welcome even if they did not have a chance to read the story, but copyright guidelines prevent us from sending the story to those who do not reply. For more information, contact Amalia Warshenbrot or Linda Levy.

Please join us on Tuesday, June 28 at 7pm to discuss Henna House by Nomi Eve. Henna House is a novel about a young woman living in the fascinating and rarely portrayed community of Yemenite Jews of the mid-twentieth century.
Nomi Eve’s vivid saga begins in Yemen in 1920, when Adela Damari’s parents desperately seek a future husband for their young daughter. After passage of the Orphan’s Decree, any unbetrothed Jewish child left orphaned will be instantly adopted by the local Muslim community. With her parents’ health failing, and no spousal prospects in sight, Adela’s situation looks dire until her uncle arrives from a faraway city, bringing with him a cousin and aunt who introduce Adela to the powerful rituals of henna tattooing.
Henna House is an intimate family portrait and a panorama of history -- from the traditions of the Yemenite Jews, to the far-ranging devastation of the Holocaust, to the birth of the State of Israel. Eve offers an unforgettable coming-of-age story and a textured chronicle of a fascinating period in the twentieth century.
For your advance planning, we will discuss Last Summer at the Golden Hotel by Elyssa Friedland on Tuesday, July 26.
Hadassah’s BookTalk book club meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 7pm. Join us on Zoom and share your opinions about the month’s book. If you would like to attend or have questions, contact Karen or Aileen.
Wine & Schmooze
July 5th at 7:00PM
Beverly's Book Nook
July 8th at 1:30PM via Zoom
#1 bestselling author Lisa Scottoline offers a sweeping and shattering epic of historical fiction in her book, Eternal, fueled by shocking true events, the tale of a love triangle that unfolds in the heart of Rome...in the creeping
shadow of fascism.
Thanks to the Preppies, we have delivered over 500 meals since January. 60 of those meals were special Seder meals. That’s a lot and the JFS clients are very appreciative.
In order to keep the momentum going, please check out our sign up genius or email Elissa to let her know what you can help with. If you don’t cook, you can always purchase rolls, gift cards, or baggies (sandwich and gallon sized). The food does not have to kosher, just kosher style. We don’t mix milk and meat and we don’t use pork or shellfish proteins. Some clients have asked for vegetarian meals. Baked ziti, vegetable lasagna, etc. would be great for those meals.
