CABI Reads!

Yiddish Meister and longtime leader of CABI's Yiddishkeit Readers Group, Dan Ronfeld, is launching a new book club—CABI Reads. We hope to encourage more readers with diverse titles that expand beyond Yiddish in translation.

Expect to read from a rich slice of modern Jewish literature including nonfiction, fantasy, and memoir (see the first five books below, along with links to reviews). Books are available on special order locally from Rediscovered Books or from your favorite online site. And of course, experience the joy of kibbitzing and noshing as always!

Registration ($18 for each CABI Reads session) will precede each meetup and will cover noshes and facilities.

Books are available for purchase from local bookseller Rediscovered Books or online retailers. AmazonSmile links are provided in each book image.
