Whether or not you’ve read the book, come join us for a lively discussion of this compelling memoir, from a different time and place, yet which includes issues we confront daily: From Jewish life in Old Cairo to this family’s experience of immigration, assimilation and the vagaries of the ‘American Dream;’ from their family dynamics (including the central place of food) to refugees and health care systems; from differences between Jewish communities to differences between Jewish and gentile communities. Natalie and Harold Gorvine lead our discussion…with refreshments, of course! (And, we’ll wrap by 4:00 so Eagles fans can be home for the 4:25 kickoff!)
