The UJC’s Book Group, The Bookhers is for anyone who likes to read and discuss Jewish books — fiction, memoir, biography — it will be up to the group to select. And of course, we’ll have a nosh too.

The Bookhers will meet on Thursday, 29th March at 7:30pm in the Rabbi's flat.

We'll be discussing Warrior by Ariel Sharon and David Chanoff.

Arguably one of Israel's most colorful and controversial public figures, Sharon is known for his brilliant generalship in several wars, as well as his accomplishments as Prime Minister, Minister of Defense, and Minister of Agriculture. In this engrossing autobiography written with David Chanoff, he reveals his private self. But more than a self-portrait of an Israeli pioneer and a general, this is a serious glimpse into the real political world of the Israeli government and a deeply believed statement on the Jewish state's credo.

To help us plan, please RSVP to the UJC office by Wednesday, 28th March.
