One Chapter at a Time

This interest group is for people who enjoy reading but consider themselves time poor.

 

Our aim is to focus on short stories by Jewish Writers.

 Our journey began with Serge Liberman, then to Etgar Keret, Ephraim Kishon, Shalom Aleichem, and S.Y Agnon. There are many more to come.

 

A group of enthusiasts meet on the second Thursday afternoon of each month in the Rev Katz Library. Discussion becomes very animated as both the short stories and the authors are analysed.

In August we will be visiting the Sephardi Synagogue. As a result of our reading “My Mother’s Spice Cupboard” we will meet the author Elana Benjamin. The book covers her family history which focuses on the Baghdadi Jews who migrated to India, before settling in Australia. Relative Sam Benjamin will introduce us to Sephardi customs.
