I finished reading Tomorrow There Will Be Apricots, by Jessica Soffer.

I saw the film, The Artist and the Model. It was filmed entirely in black and white, which only emphasized the setting, emotions and story line. It moves slow, which for me was nice, and allowed the viewer to grasp the emotional content through the body language of the actors.

I am in the middle of reading The Lute and the Scars, by Danilo Kis.

Visit Leora, at Sketching Out, to browse through the links for the August Jewish Book Carnival.

Hannah has some lovely photographs and information regarding the American Memorial in Chateuu-Thierry.

This man is building a Sukkah out of “homeless signs” he bought. How clever, how inspiring, and filled with Mitzvot!

Fire in My Heart: The Story of Hannah Senesh is now on exhibit at the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center.

Overweight Sensation: The Life and Comedy of Allan Sherman, by Mark Cohen, looks to be an interesting read in more ways than one.


Read here
, in the Jewish Observer, to learn about Edyie Gorme, who died at the age of 84. You can also learn about a Treblinka survivor, along with a story about a German who saved Jews during World War II.

Sorry about the update…I needed to correct something.

  2. Too bad the Hannah Senesh exhibit is in Illinois – sounds interesting. Film about the artist sounds good, too.

    Thank you for the link. I love the tree. Such character.

  3. Thank you, Leora. I know…maybe the Hannah Senesh Exhibit will travel.
