TBA Book Group with Rabbi David Z. Vaisberg

The Temple B’nai Abraham Book Group  led by Rabbi David Z. Vaisberg, M.A.R.E., M.A.H.L, will have engaging, meaningful, and edifying conversations about different books each month. Together we developed a rich, varied, and provocative reading list for the coming year. On Wednesday, December 18, at 7:30 PM, The Liar by Ayelet Gundar-Goshen will be discussed.

Nofar is an average teenage girl—so average, in fact, that she’s almost invisible. Serving customers ice cream all summer long, she is desperate for some kind of escape. But one afternoon, a terrible lie slips from her tongue. And suddenly everyone wants to talk to her: the press, her schoolmates, and even the boy upstairs. He is the only one who knows the truth, and he is demanding a price for his silence. Then Nofar meets Raymonde, an elderly immigrant whose best friend has just died. Raymonde keeps her friend alive the only way she knows how, by inhabiting her stories. But soon, Raymonde’s lies take on a life of their own. Written with propulsive energy, dark humor, and deep insight, The Liar reveals the far-reaching consequences of even our smallest choices, and explores the hidden corners of human nature to reveal the liar, and the truth-teller, in all of us.

Books are almost always available from area libraries, or online, or at local booksellers.  The book group is free and open to the community, you can begin attending anytime. RSVP 973-994-2290 or register online at www.tbanj.org.
