The On the Same Page Partnership2Gether Book Club will hold its next meeting on Sunday, April 25, at 1 p.m. via Zoom.
The group, which connects Lehigh Valley Jewish community residents to their Partnership2Gether community in Yoav, Israel, will be reading the 2006 book “A Woman in Jerusalem” by A. B. Yehoshua and watching a film based on it, “The Human Resources Manager” from 2010.
One review stated, “Embedded in this simple story are fundamental questions about identity, selfhood, belonging. Yehoshua, long a master of gentle, almost Chekhovian comedy, takes in this instance a deeply bleak premise—Yulia Ragayev’s brutal death—and creates from it a work of art by turns absurd, strange and moving.”
The book club holds quarterly meetings with participants from the Lehigh Valley and Yoav. They use contemporary Israeli and Jewish American literature to ignite conversations and foster meaningful bonds between book lovers in both communities.
