Books and Bagels is a program that has met for many years. We get together, enjoy bagels, coffee and tea, and discus books we have read. Anyone can come and present a book, or come to listen and discus. We’d like to hear about books on Jewish topics or by Jewish authors, but that is not required. Past discussions have included fiction, history, religion, cooking, jewelry, science, biography, and more. We’ve also discussed movies, and articles from Jewish magazines, such as Hadassah or Moment. So, come on down and enjoy the discussion and the bagels. Please rsvp by Friday, October 26, to Carl (585-266-6982. or click RSVP on-line to respond on-line.
