Book Group

TAS Book Group selections consist of fiction and non-fiction written by Jewish authors or about Jewish subjects. Books are carefully chosen for their literary value and interest to men and women alike. Meetings take place in the Library/Rothenberg Chapel on the second Thursday of the month from September through June. Refreshments are available at 7:00 p.m. and the discussion begins promptly at 7:30 p.m. While there is no membership requirement, we ask for a $5 donation from each person in attendance.
