Ideas and Discussions

Ohr Kodesh is a community of readers and authors. Every corner of our building has books.

While we are operating remotely, getting together to share our love of reading is helping keep our community strong. Two book groups meet regularly via Zoom to provide for the different schedules of our members. Based on recent experience, both groups are likely to incorporate remote options even after in-person meetings resume.

Upcoming titles for both groups appear in the monthly bulletin, are highlighted in the weekly emails, and can be found as events on the OKC Calendar.

OKC Afternoon Book Club
Meets on the first Wednesday of the month at noon, currently via Zoom. Feel free to enjoy your lunch during the meeting.

Books are chosen by the club's members, generally several months in advance, alternating fiction and nonfiction every other month. Most titles are limited to no longer than 400 pages. New participants are always welcome! For further information, contact Natalie Cantor. 

OKC Evening Book Group
Meets every 6 weeks on Wednesday nights. So long as Ohr Kodesh continues to operate remotely, the group will meet on Zoom at 8:30 pm, after the Evening Check-in.

The Evening Group is intergenerational by intention. Book choices include fiction and nonfiction, incorporating Israeli titles in translation. All members of the Ohr Kodesh community are welcome!
Choices in the group’s first year are:

  • The Seven Good Years by Etgar Keret
  • Second Person Singular by Sayed Kashua
  • Kaddish.com by Nathan Englander
  • Inheritance by Dani Shapiro
  • On Division by Goldie Goldbloom
  • I Want You to Know We Are Still Here by Esther Safran Foer
  • The House on Endless Waters by Emuna Elon
  • My Mother’s Son by David Hirshberg
