    Young Israel Book Club
    Wednesday, Jan 16th 8:00p to 9:30p
    For our January selection, we will be reading The Weight of Ink by Rachel Kadish (suggested by Book Club member, Norma Berg). f the Lisses, 110 Ames Street. Set in London of the 1660s and of the early twenty-first century, The Weight of Ink (winner of a National Jewish Book Award) is the interwoven tale of two women of remarkable intellect: Ester Velasquez, an emigrant from Amsterdam who is permitted to scribe for a blind rabbi, just before the plague hits the city; and Helen Watt, an ailing historian with a love of Jewish history. When Helen is summoned by a former student to view a cache of newly discovered seventeenth-century Jewish documents, she enlists the help of Aaron Levy, an American graduate student as impatient as he is charming, and embarks on one last project: to determine the identity of the documents' scribe, the elusive "Aleph." Electrifying and ambitious, The Weight of Ink is about women separated by centuries—and the choices and sacrifices they must make in order to reconcile the life of the heart and mind.

    The Green Dumpster Mystery
    Ha'taalumah Ba'meholah Ha'yerukah
    Israel, 2008, 50 minutes
    Hebrew with English subtitles
    Directed by Tal Haim Yoffe

    Traveling on his scooter through Tel Aviv, filmmaker Tal Haim Yoffe finds a discarded box of old photographs in a green dumpster. This docu-detective film, slowly unwinds a family history, beginning in Lodz, Poland, and traveling through the Siberian Gulag, a Samarkand sugar plant, a Ha’apala ship and the battlefields of the Sinai Peninsula. Like Daniel Mendelsohn's bestseller The Lost and David Ofek’s film No. 17 is Anonymous, this tightly-paced tour de force vividly evokes the now-extinguished lives of an anonymous—but typical—Israeli family.
