Hazak 55+

Tuesday, June 2, 10:30am - note date change


Our Hazak meeting for May will be postponed to the first Tuesday in June because of the Shavuot holiday in May. 
Our program will be presented by John Powers, a writer and director.
He will be doing an adaptation of the O.J. Simpson trial from the original transcript.  The audience will experience it both as an audience and participant, a stimulating and provacative experience.  Afterwards, the group will discuss this trial and Mr. Powers will address all questions.  This will be a new and exciting experience for us all and we hope that any CTJ member wishing to attend will do so.  We will share lunch after the program for $5.00.

CTJ Book Club - All Other Nights by Dana Horn

Monday, June 22, 7:30pm
Member's home

How is tonight different from all other nights? For Jacob Rappaport, a Jewish soldier in the Union Army, it is a question his commanders have answered for him: on Passover, 1862, he is ordered to murder his own uncle, who is plotting to assassinate Abraham Lincoln. After this harrowing mission, Jacob is recruited to pursue another enemy agent—this time not to murder the spy, but to marry her. Based on real historical figures, this novel delivers multi-layered, page-turning storytelling at its best. The Book Club is coed and has a wide variety of readers.  Come once, come every time - whatever your schedule allows.  For more information email Dorit at dorit_kehr@yahoo.com.
