This special evening is both an open house for prospective members and a welcome back for current members.

Join us as we gather in the library with friends, new and old, from 7:00 – 8:30 pm, where we'll enjoy wine, fruit, cheese and chocolate together.  Friends of CBS are welcome!

CBS Book Group, Thursday October 26, 2023 at 7:00 PM at B’nai Shalom

Join us to discuss Kantika by Elizabeth Graver, historical fiction based on the life of the author’s feisty Sephardic-Turkish grandmother, daughter of an elite Sephardic family in early 20th century Istanbul. The family loses their wealth, and they are forced to move to Barcelona, then to Cuba, and later to New York. We are honored to welcome local author Elizabeth Graver as our discussion leader. We’ll hear a personal account of the Sephardic family’s comfortable life in Turkey and the challenges they faced during their journeys. Following the discussion, we share homemade Sephardic desserts. This book event is sponsored by Worcester JCC Author Series, in partnership with Hadassah Greater Boroughs and Worcester Chapters, Congregation B’nai Shalom Sisterhood, Chaverim of JFCM and Beth Tikvah Synagogue.
