SUMMER BOOK CLUB starts Monday, June 24. This year the selection is The Chosen by Chaim Potak. The novel is about two fourteen-year-old boys from opposing yeshiva schools who face each other on the ball field. But it actually is a fascinating revelation of two aspects of the Jewish faith, the Hasidic and the Orthodox and their ways of life. Join us Mondays at 1 p.m. in Glover Hall to get an appreciation of Jewish culture and learning told through the story of two boys who bridge a culture gap to form a lasting friendship.
