Barbara's Book Club

Thursday, October 17, 2019 18 Tishrei 5780

7:30 PM - 9:30 PMSukkah at the Panush Residence

We will be discussing The Hilltop, by Assaf Gavron.  Gavron, 51, has written seven books, and his fiction has been translated into 10 languages. He has won the Israeli Prime Minister’s Creative Award for Authors, the Book fur die Stadt award in Germany, and the Prix Courrier International award in France. The son of English immigrants, he grew up in a small village near Jerusalem and lives in Tel Aviv.

The Hilltop skewers the complex, often absurd reality of life in Israel, focusing on Ma’aleh Hermesh C, a fledgling outpost of Jewish settlers in the West Bank. According to government records, it doesn’t exist; according to the military, it must be defended.  The settlement becomes the focus of an international diplomatic scandal, facing its greatest threat.

We will be in the Panush Sukkah, so bring a light jacket or sweater. RSVP to Rena Panush at
