All discussions will begin at 7:00PM in the Kol Ami Library, with a brief break at 7:30 PM for minyan. For more information, please contact the group facilitator, Debbie Doliner, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The book that the TOLL Book Group will be discussing on Tues., June 6, beginning at 7 PM, will be And So It Was Written by Ellen Brazer. It is historical fiction taking place around 132 CE. The story reads like a novel. It features brothers, one who is kidnapped when he is young and raised by the Romans, and the other becomes a Jewish military leader. The Third Temple is being built and the Ark of the Covenant holding the Ten Commandments is discovered. Bar Kokhba is the proclaimed Jewish Messiah who defeats the Roman army and rules Judea. It is well written and researched, a real gem of a reading experience.
