JOFA Journal Book Clubs: Are you interested in discussing the articles in the newest issue—and future issues—of the JOFA Journal with people in your own community? Partner with JOFA to host a reading group (think: book club) in your home! We’ll provide discussion guides to get the conversation going, tips for facilitating groups, and a sample e-vite. Questions are very open-ended, and you can choose which you want to discuss! You will decide which issues resonate most strongly for your group.
In addition to inviting your own friends, fellow shul members, and neighbors, you can ask JOFA to help you advertise and identify people who might be interested in joining your group! For more information about this new initiative or to volunteer your home, please contact JOFA Program Manager Rivka Cohen at [email protected].
