HT Book Club

The Hebrew Tabernacle Book Club, open to the community, meets monthly at the Hebrew Tabernacle on Monday or Wednesday evenings, and is volunteer led.  We read a variety of fiction and non-fiction genres, and have had local authors join us!

We welcome all for a light nosh, and guarantee lively discussion!

Come meet your neighbors, and join us to learn and exchange opinions about various Jewish issues.

Suggestions for books are appreciated. Please contact convener Susan Gellert (
