    Wednesday, Jun 19th 8:00p to 9:30p
    At our next book club meeting, we will discuss The Last Watchman of Old Cairo by Michael David Lukas, winner of the 2018 National Jewish Book Award for Fiction. https://www.jewishbookcouncil.org/book/the-last-watchman-of-old-cairo Joseph, a literature student at Berkeley, is the son of a Jewish mother and a Muslim father. One day, a mysterious package arrives on his doorstep, pulling him into a mesmerizing adventure to uncover the tangled history that binds the two sides of his family. For generations, the men of the al-Raqb family have served as watchmen of the storied Ibn Ezra Synagogue in Old Cairo, built at the site where the infant Moses was taken from the Nile. Joseph learns of his ancestor Ali, a Muslim orphan who nearly a thousand years earlier was entrusted as the first watchman of the synagogue and became enchanted by its legendary—perhaps magical—Ezra Scroll. The story of Joseph’s family is entwined with that of the British twin sisters Agnes and Margaret, who in 1897 depart their hallowed Cambridge halls on a mission to rescue sacred texts that have begun to disappear from the synagogue. (from Amazon.com) All book club books may be purchased from Amazon through the link on the YI website, which will provide Young Israel with 10 percent of the purchase price. We also try to ensure that there are sufficient copies available through the Sharon Public Library system for all of our book club selections. (In addition, several of our current book club members have indicated that they have library cards through the Minuteman Library System (https://www.minlib.net/our-libraries) and were able to obtain copies of books at the Norwood, Needham, Newton and Brookline libraries among many others.) New members are always welcome. Hope to see you there!
