In this decade, no non-fiction book coming out of Israel has been more lauded than My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel. It won the inaugural Natan Book Award before it was even finished. As the Jewish Daily Forward noted, “Ari Shavit wants to do nothing less than prompt a fresh discourse on Israel, something free and loving, critical and authentic, a conversation that accepts both the miracle and the true consequences of the Jewish state, one that will bring American Jews closer to the real Israel and Israelis closer to their own lost narrative.”
An RSVP is necessary as we have to cap our numbers in order to continue meeting in the warmth and intimacy of members’ homes. Space fills up quickly, and names are taken on a first come basis. Sign up even if you haven’t finished reading the book, or haven’t read it at all! We promise an interesting evening either way. Location will be provided upon confirmation of RSVP.
