This year, we are starting a temple-wide Israel book group. We will start with best-selling Israeli author Micah Goodman’s book The Left, The Right, and the Legacy of the 6-Day War, which has been called “A must read for anyone who wants to understand the tectonic forces underlying Israeli politics.” Next, we will read Colum McCann’s New York Times bestseller Apeirogon, the story of a Palestinian father and an Israeli father who both lose a child to the conflict, and though raised to hate one another, come together to use their grief as a weapon for peace. Mark your calendars for discussions about these enlightening books.
