WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4; 12:00-1:30 PM  Salzberg Library;

The Family: A Journey into the Heart of the Twentieth Century by David Laskin will be discussed.
A century and a half ago, a Torah scribe and his wife raised six children in a yeshiva town at the western fringe of the Russian empire. Bound by their customs and ancient faith, the pious couple expected their sons and daughter to carry family traditions into future generations. But the social and political crises of our time decreed otherwise. The torrent of history took the scribe’s family down three very different roads. One branch immigrated to America and founded the fabulously successful Maidenform Bra Company; another went to Palestine as pioneers and participated in the contentious birth of the state of Israel; the third branch remained in Europe and suffered the onslaught of the Nazi occupation.

Feel free to bring a dairy or parve lunch to the meeting. Coffee will be provided.
