The book is Rabbis and Wives by Chaim Grade.
Rabbis and Wives is three novellas by an internationally celebrated Yiddish writer (1910-1982) that provide a luminous view of a Jewish village in Lithuania between the two world wars and some of its residents. Chaim Grade ranks among the most important Yiddish writers of the post-Holocaust period. His unsentimental depictions of rabbinic high culture and life on the Jewish streets of Vilna both describe memorable characters drawn from different strata of society and dramatize the contest of ideas and moral impulses that defined his community in the interwar period.
Meet with other congregants for an evening of thought-provoking conversation, friendship and fun to discuss the book.
