"On Becoming a Jew in Post-World War II Germany"

Annette GendlerSisterhood welcomes congregants and their friends – women and men – to our open meetings.  This month Annette Gendler speaks:  "On Becoming a Jew in Post‑World War II Germany."

1:00 open meeting programs are followed by refreshments and conversation.

Ms. Gendler's memoir Jumping Over Shadows, the story of a German-Jewish love that overcame the baggage of the Holocaust, is coming in spring 2017.

"In this extraordinary work, Annette Gendler illuminates the borders and meeting points between Judaism and Christianity, Germans and Jews, American Jews and Israeli Jews.  Writing with eloquent precision, she reminds us why converts to Judaism are among the most precious gifts to the Jewish people.  This book confirms Annette Gendler as an indispensable Jewish voice for our time."
