All Book Club Meetings are scheduled for Wednesday evenings from 7:30-9:00 pm in the Beit Midrash. All are welcome to attend.
The Paris Architect by Charles Belfoure
In 1942 Paris, gifted architect Lucien Bernard accepts a commission to design a secret hiding place for a wealthy Jewish man, a space so invisible that even the most determined German officer won't find it.
The Bridal Chair by Gloria Goldreich*
This historical-fiction novel tells the story of beautiful Ida Chagall, the only daughter of Marc Chagall, as she blossoms in the Paris art world beyond her father's controlling gaze. But in Nazi-occupied Paris, Chagall's status as a Jewish artist has made them all targets, yet his devotion to his art blinds him to their danger.
*This is a long book--we recommend you start reading early!
