Book Club
with Cantor/Rabbi Debra Stein

Our first book is Inheritance by Dani Shapiro. This is a wonderful book about how through a genealogy website to which she had whimsically submitted her DNA for analysis, Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. She woke up one morning and her entire history—the life she had lived—crumbled beneath her. The book is available at all book stores, and on Amazon.


Women’s Winter Dine Around
with Cantor/Rabbi Debra Stein

Join your JCOH “girlfriends” in a fun dine around. We will meet at restaurants at 6:00pm, and enjoy each other’s company with a glass of wine (first glass compliments of the Cantor) some fine food, inspiring and uplifting conversation. To join us, RSVP no later than Thursday of the week prior so we can let you know where we are meeting. We need not always meet at restaurants, it’s more about being together. If you would like to open your home for one of these dinners, I’ll bring the wine.
