Community Book Club and follow up



The Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey, the Jewish Community Relations Council and its Esther Raab Holocaust Museum & Goodwin Education Center, in partnership with area Synagogues, Jewish Day Schools and Federation Agencies, will promote the reading of a single book throughout the community.  Following a pre-determined set of time to allow for distribution and reading of the book, local clergy, educators, community lay leaders and/or professional staff will facilitate a variety of discussions to  discuss the themes and messages of the book and ideally strategize as to how to utilize the information/education obtained to further strengthen our Jewish/entire community.
