Life is not just ritual. Religion is not only prayer. In order to be connected to our heritage, we must look beyond our four walls.
Once a month we read a book. Sometimes they are Jewish authors. Sometimes Jewish content. Sometimes they just strike our fancy and inspire interesting conversation.
This month we explored love, loss and complex family dynamics with Elizabeth Poliner's As Close to us as Breathing.
Perhaps I'll update this with meaningful comments from the group. Even if I do not, I hope to see your thoughts on this great book below!
