Saturday, February 25 – 12:30 pm: Sisterhood Torah Fund Book Club will discuss An Officer and a Spy by Robert Harris after the Shabbat Kiddush, facilitated by Rachel Kamin. A tale inspired by the infamous Dreyfus Affair finds Georges Picquart, the recently promoted head of Paris' late-nineteenth-century counterespionage agency, leading the effort to convict Dreyfus only to succumb to gradual doubts that a high-level spy remains at large in the military. New members welcome! Copies of the books are available in the Abbell Library and from local libraries and bookstores. Contact Rachel Kamin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847/926-7902 for the complete book club calendar. A $36 annual donation to the Torah Fund Campaign is requested.
