Please join us as we welcome Rabbi Julie back from summer vacation.  We'll have brunch and discuss the book we are reading over the summer:  How to Cure a Fanatic by the Israeli journalist/writer/intellectual Amos Oz.
This is a slim book of three short essays. We'll particularly focus on the third essay, an interview with Oz called "The Order of the Teaspoon." Amos Oz was born in Jerusalem before the state of Israel existed; he lived his life as a passionate Zionist who experienced the tragedy of idealism degenerating into oppression. He died this past year so this is a good time to review some of his stellar work. For more background, please see the recent New Yorker article here. We'll come together to discuss this book over brunch on Sunday morning August 18 in the William Penn House community room.  Please RSVP to info@leyvhair.org or 215.629.1995 by Thursday, August 15 to let us know if you are coming.
