"THE SUSAN" OF SUSAN AND FRIENDS, Thursday, October 1st
7:45 PM after services

Susan will be interviewed by Sondra Helene (author of the novel "Appearances") about her Susan's new publication
"A Palm Beach Scandal."
Veronica and Simon Cutler and their dazzling adult daughters, Elodie and Aubrey, strike an enviable pose, the ultimate Palm Beach family. In a town where social aspirations, wealth and charm prevail – they are transcendent. While the sisters are polar opposites, they are fiercely loyal to one another.
And then one stupefying secret, meant to be buried forever, is unearthed and no one in the Cutler clan is able to turn back. As the family is shaken to their core, Aubrey and Elodie must realize their places in the world and the lives they want to lead.
In the midst of the unforgiving opulence of Palm Beach, A Palm Beach Scandal is a story for our times. A captivating tale of discovery, sisterhood and love for others where you least expect it.

It’s been a long time since we’ve been together. Even though we’ve all become experts in zoom, this long Covid season has kept us physically apart from our friends. We would like to remedy that with a get together, socially distance of course, at the beach! Let’s all meet up at 4:30 on Monday, October 5th (weather permitting) at the 68th Street Beach for “Cocktails and Canapés.” So throw some wine and cheese into your beach bag, grab a sweatshirt and beach chair and meet us at the beach! Please let us know if your interested so that we can reach out and keep you updated. 
Hope to see you all there!

Things are a-changing. We did a night of games in July and it was a night of laughs and fun and so we decided to do it again. This time, it will only be trivia, and the wining zoomers will receive a free ticket to our next game night. How does that sound! The Chaverah group is inviting our members, congregation, friends and family to another night of Trivia Zoom Style. Hosted by the professional “Text Breakers”, we will start our night of challenge on Thursday, October 15 at 8:00 PM. Cost is $15.00. For this event, you will need two devices, a mobile phone and a laptop, or pc or iPad. Call the office to purchase tickets to this event or click on this link to order tickets and the office will contact you for payment.
         THE 3RD WEDNESDAY, AT 4:00 PM
Rashi's Daughters (3 book series) by
In this novel, the year is 1068, and Rashi, a Jewish scholar is secretly teaching Talmud to his daughters. The oldest daughter, Joheved, has a passion for learning, but must keep it a secret in the medieval Jewish world. This story is based on the lives of real people.
The second novel in a dramatic trilogy set in eleventh-century France about the lives and loves of three daughters of the great Talmud scholar
Rashi’s middle daughter, Miriam, is determined to bring new life safely into the Troyes Jewish community and becomes a midwife. As devoted as she is to her chosen path, she cannot foresee the ways in which she will be tested and how heavily she will need to rely on her faith. With Rashi's Daughters, author Maggie Anton brings the Talmud and eleventh-century France to vivid life and poignantly captures the struggles and triumphs of strong Jewish women.
Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 4:00 PM
The dramatic final book in the epic historical trilogy about the lives and loves of the three daughters of the great Talmud scholar Rashi
Rachel is the youngest and most beautiful daughter of medieval Jewish scholar Salomon ben Isaac, or "Rashi." Her father's favorite and adored by her new husband, Eliezer, Rachel's life looks to be one of peaceful scholarship, laughter, and love. But events beyond her control will soon threaten everything she holds dear. Marauders of the First Crusade massacre nearly the entire Jewish population of Germany, and her beloved father suffers a stroke. Eliezer wants their family to move to the safety of Spain, but Rachel is determined to stay in France and help her family save the Troyes yeshiva, the only remnant of the great centers of Jewish learning in Europe.
