The photograph above was taken by me a few years ago. It shows the synagogue interior of Congregation Mickve Israel.
Thank you to Leora’s book review: Short Story Review: The Oxford Book of Hebrew Short Stories, I now have another book to read. My library was able to get it from the main branch, and I picked it up this afternoon. I also picked up Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend, by Matthew Dicks, and another book entitled Max. by Howard Fast. Speaking of Howard Fast, I bought his novel, Second Generation at a used book shop.
Between the three library books and the one I bought, I will be busy the next few days. Oh, did I mention that I am in the middle of reading Unexpected Gifts, by S. R. Mallery?
I finished reading The Memory Palace: A Memoir. It was a good read.
The Chicken Lady of Jerusalem: A Life of Giving, the Remarkable Story of Clara Hammer, looks to be an inspiring book.
Margot: A Novel, by Jillian Cantor seems to have a unique take on Anne Frank’s sister.
Thoughts go out to my friend, hoping she will get through the next few days of emotional moments.
I am sorry for the update, I inadvertently left out a link.
