Jewish Book Club
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 Segal. These 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!
