 Temple Emanu-El’s VIRTUAL Fall Book Discussion:       
Sunday, November 14, 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Featuring Dara Horn’s exciting and thought-provoking third novel 
All Other NightsFacilitated by Arlene Simon.  

Please join us for a marvelous reading experience and a stimulating discussion of a book whose historical setting belies its resonance in our own times. 
Set during the Civil War, the author mixes historical events and real Jewish Civil War figures like Judah Benjamin with fictional characters like her protagonist Jacob Rappaport to propel an action-packed, romance-infused tale of loyalty and where one places it.  It is also a brilliant parable of the rift in America that lingers a century and a half later: between valuing family and tradition as the highest priority, and holding social and racial justice for all as the greatest goal.
