    Temple Israel Conference Room and Zoom

    Wednesday Book Club meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 1:30 PM in the conference room at Temple, and we also provide a zoom link for those who cannot join us in person.

    For the February 8 meeting, we are reading Rush by Lisa Patton. A story about mothers and daughters, sisterhood, tradition, and doing the right thing.

    It’s move-in day for college freshmen on the Ole Miss campus. Nobody wants to fit in more than Cali, a bright, small town girl with family secrets too scandalous for the well-to-do to imagine. Sorority rush is weeks away and without a pedigree, Cali doesn’t have much of a chance at membership. Her dorm room alone is as plain as a cardigan sweater, while the girls next door have one that would make the finest of designers swoon.

    Wilda, Alpha Delta Beta alum and rush advisor, has a daughter rushing in the fall, but Lilith, the well-heeled House Corp President, sees Wilda as a pushover and will stop at nothing to ensure her own daughter’s legacy bid. Inside the Alpha Delt house, Miss Pearl has been housekeeper and second mother to the girls for years, even though it reminds her of a painful part of her past. When a chance for promotion arises, Lilith slams her Chimmy Choo heel down fast, crushing Miss Pearl’s hopes of a better future. But once Wilda and the girls find out, they devise a plan destined to change Alpha Delta Beta―and maybe the entire Greek system―forever.

    Lisa Patton's 
    Rush takes a sharp nuanced look at a centuries-old tradition while examining the complex relationships between women and what happens when they dare to use their voices. Achingly poignant yet chock-full of humor, Rush is an uplifting novel universal to us all.

    Happy Reading!

    Susan Stein, Leader

    "The Holiness Code -- What is Rebuke Doing There?
    How Does This Relate to Purim?"

    Is rebuke the same as criticism?
    According to Jewish tradition, when should you rebuke someone? 
    When should you NOT rebuke someone? 
    Are there questions to ask yourself before offering criticism? 
    How to do it and what are you supposed to do if you're the one being rebuked?  Is this really in the Torah?  The Talmud? 
    What can we learn about rebuke from the Purim story?
