Great Jewish Literature: The Short Story

Thursdays, April 29, May 6, and May 13 at 7:30pm

Don’t have time to read an entire book? Join us for our new three-part series to discuss Jewish-themed literary short stories with Lisa Silverman, long-time book club facilitator, ex-Adat Ari El Day School librarian, and retired director of the Sperber Jewish Community Library at AJU.
