Community Read of kaddish.com by Nathan Englander
Sunday, February 23 at 2:00 p.m. in the Natt Family Library
kaddish.com is a sharp, irreverent tale of a son who makes a diabolical compromise that brilliantly captures the tensions between tradition and modernity. Join us for an exploration of kaddish.com, moderated by B’nai Israel congregant and professional book-discussion leader, Kelle Ruden. This community read is part of the Federation’s community-wide program series, Judaism: A 2020 Vision – Ancient Traditions through a Contemporary Lens.
