Tween Book Club: “Refugee”

Saturday, October 20, 2018 11 Cheshvan 5779

12:45 PM - 2:00 PM3 North

As part of “Refugee Shabbat,” kids in Grades 5 through 8 are invited to our “AC Tween Book Club” to discuss the award winning book “Refugee” by Alan Gratz, facilitated by Rabbi Yael, and master educator and self-described “book nut” - Sheila Lewis.  

What do a Jewish boy fleeing Nazi Germany in 1939, a Cuban girl on a raft bound for America in 1994, and a Syrian boy traveling to Germany in recent times, have in common? Join us to find out what became of Josef, Isabel, and Mahmoud in their intertwining stories, and to discuss what YOU would do, if you were in their shoes.

Kids are encouraged (though not required) to read “Refugee” ahead of time. It’s available for purchase at local book stores, like Bank Street Books and Book Culture, and online. Please take lunch from the Community Kiddush in Hirsh Hall after the Sanctuary Service, then join us on the 3rd floor at 1PM for Book Club with your lunch.

Sorry, Registration has ended.
