TI Book Club Meeting

Tuesday, December 6, 2022 12 Kislev 5783

7:30 PM - 9:00 PMvia Zoom

At this month's book club meeting we will discuss a different type of book (not a novel, not non-fiction - but short stories!), 
The Man Who Sold Air in the Holy Land by Omer Friedlander

As the flyleaf description notes, "Omer Friedlander's gorgeously immersive and imaginative stories take you the narrow limestone alleyways of Jerusalem, the desolate beauty of the Negev Desert, and the  sprawling orange groves of Jaffa, with characters that spring to vivid life."  Included in the 11 stories are such titles as "Jaffa Oranges," "Alte Sachen," "The Sephardi Survivor," " High Heels," "Jellyfish in Gaza," and of course the title of the book.

Discussing short stories is sure to be a different experience for Temple Israel book club participants.  With such praise as "Beautifully written . . .an exceptionally thoughtful writer," it's sure to be an enjoyable one!  The Man Who Sold Air in the Holy Land is available at the public and Jewish libraries, on Kindle for $14, and for about $20 in paperback.

Folks are welcome whether or not they have read the book.  Those on the Temple Israel book club e-mail list will receive the link as the date gets closer.  For additional information or to add your name to the book club e-mail list contact Linda Levy 704-366-6362,

Looking forward to seeing you December 6 when we discuss Omer Friedlander's short stories The Man Who Sold Air in the Holy Land!
