 Adult Education Survey


Adat Chaverim Bookclub

From a very early age, Jewish children are taught to use critical thinking and debating skills. It is a tradition Jews hold dear since the time Abraham debated G-d over the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah. Debate is a central theme within the Talmud as rabbis and scholars have discussed their interpretations of the Torah throughout the years.  "The truth is complex. The concept of Talmudic Debate is based on the idea that one should not study alone, but rather will gain more from studying with another. The premise underlying this takes into account the multitude of voices and many commentators - over generations - that have studied and interpreted the Talmud, forming interpretations which can be both theoretical and practical." 

How perfect is it then for us to have a book club, where we can discuss, argue and review to a book. Reading is a solitary act, but there‚Äôs so much to be gained by reading and discussing together. Our book club is a chance to interact with our Adat community, as we connect with fellow bookish kindred spirits for fun, encouragement, and a more fulfilling reading experience. Therefore, we are welcoming back the Book Club to Adat Chaverim's Adult Education programming.

This year we will be using the book The New Diaspora: The Changing Landscape of American Jewish Fiction which is available from  This is a book of short storiesnew dispora which can be used for the entire year.  Each meeting will focus on one story from the collection.  

Come to our first meeting on November 7th at 7PM as we gather in the lobby.  We will read and discuss a short story that will be read during the first meeting. At the end, we will also have a discussion on how the book club will be organized and run.  We want the club to meet the needs and desires of the participants.   

There is no need to purchase the book prior to the first class meeting. Please contact Adult Education at if you are interested in joining us.
