MazorGuide's Jewish Book Club
Jewish Authors, Jewish Stories, Jewish Themes

Can you think of a better way to celebrate Judaism and things Jewish than the celebration our writers, our literature, and our history? Perhaps.

But arguably, intellectual pursuit was and still is highly regarded and admired in Jewish culture. Not for naught is this nation referred to as the "People of the Book."  Certainly, the "Book" they refer to is the Old Testament, you may contend, but did you know that statistically speaking, Jews buy more books per capita than any other ethnic group. (Well, at least in Israel, they do.) 

Literary accolades galore were bestowed on Jewish Authors - a long and impressive list of honors that include The Nobel Prize for Boris Pasternak (1958), Shmuel Yosef "Shai" Agnon (1966), and Saul Bellow (1976); The Pulitzer Prize for Norman Mailer (1969), Art Spiegelman (1992), and Philip Roth (1998): Prix Médicis étranger, the French Literary award to Joseph Heller (1985), Paul Auster (1993) and Aharon Appelfeld (2004), to name just a few. 

Famous works, whether of literary importance or widely recognized best sellers by Jewish writers include Catch 22 by Joseph Heller, Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, Night by Eli Wiesel, Exodus by Leon Uris, the two volume epic The Winds of War / War and Remembrance by Herman Wouk, The Chosen by Chaim Potok, and Love Story by Erich SegalThese are not even a drop in the ocean, of course.

Indeed, with the vast number of books and authors to choose from, selecting the work with which to launch the MazorGuide book club is a bit daunting.  We are open to suggestions!

Latest Addition to the Mazorguide Bookclub:
- From Ambivalence to Betrayal is the first study to explore the transformation in attitudes on the Left toward the Jews, Zionism, and Israel since the origins of European socialism in the 1840s until the present. This path-breaking synthesis reveals a striking continuity in negative stereotypes of Jews, contempt for Judaism, and negation of Jewish national self-determination from the days of Karl Marx to the current left-wing intellectual assault on Israel. World-renowned expert on the history of anti-Semitism Robert S. Wistrich provides not only a powerful analysis of how and why the Left emerged as a spearhead of anti-Israel sentiment but also new insights into the wider involvement of Jews in radical movements.

- One of the secrets to a good life is learning how to find beauty, however with societal worship of what it deems beautiful, especially in regard to feminine beauty, many of us often lose sight of "true beauty."  In Biblical Beauty Rachelle Weisberger, herself a
licensed cosmetologist, makeup artist and skin care specialist, offers a refreshing alternative way to define beauty, heath, aging, womanhood & spirituality.
