Tired of Zoom fatigue and anticipating a long winter … and spring … and fall? Introducing: BOOKS!

Join Rabbi Fischel and 2239 for Of Mice and Mensch: A Jew-ish, Feel-Good Book Club.

We will enjoy some quirky, sometimes irreverent, Jewish and Israeli books, chat about them (yes, over Zoom), and enjoy each other’s company. Our reading will range from memoirs to short stories to fantasy, the criteria being that the books do not have to be “good” (in a literary sense), they just have to be entertaining.

Join us the first Wednesday of every month at 8:00 pm on Zoom!
