DESCRIPTION

Join Sisterhood for a discussion on The Last Watchman of Old Cairo by Michael David Lukas. This is wonderful historical fiction, a novel that entices the reader to truly care about the historical artifacts revered by the characters in its pages. A spell binding tale, family drama illuminates the fascinating story of a famous repository of Jewish documents, the Cairo Geniza. An American student with a Jewish mother and Muslim father explores his family’s tangled roots in the history of Cairo's ancient synagogue. Copies have been reserved at the Bryant Library - they will allow members of the Shelter Rock Library to take out the book, just let them know you are from the Temple Beth Sholom book group. Facilitator: Wende Jager-Hyman.
