For our annual synagogue-wide read, we are reading "Waking Lions" by Israeli author and clinical psychologist Ayelat Gunder-Goshen. The book begins when, after speeding along a moonlit Negev desert road after an exhausting hospital shift, an Israeli surgeon hits an African migrant and flees the scene. "Waking Lions" is a gripping, suspenseful, and morally devastating drama of guilt and survival, shame and desire and raises issues of refugees in Israel. A New York Times Notable Book. The book is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle versions.
Join us on November 10 for brunch and a book discussion of "Waking Lion"s led by Professor Eric Zakim, Associate Professor of Hebrew Literature and Culture, University of Maryland at College Park. Free for Oseh Shalom members, $10 for non-members. Sponsored by the Lifelong Learning Committee. For more information, contact Marla Singer, firstname.lastname@example.org.
