The Book Group’s next meeting will be on Wednesday, April 10 at 7:00 pm in the Community Room. Please consider joining us!

The selection for April will be Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sack’s Morality: Restoring the Common Good in Divided Times. Reviewers have said of this book:

“Sacks’s command of the historical sweep of intellectual thought is breathtaking…One can only wish that Sacks’s brilliant, urgent ‘ethical will’ can transcend his grandchildren and inspire all who fervently hope to emerge from this difficult time with an enhanced sense of human solidarity, responsibility, morality and love.”―The Washington Post

“Rabbi Jonathan Sacks was among the most morally serious, intellectually honest, and insightful public intellectuals of our time. He will be greatly missed by believers and non- believers alike. We should be thankful he left this book with us. May his memory be for a blessing.”―Claremont Review of Books

“Morality is not an argument or a compilation of thoughts — it is a wake-up call to a world that has become self-obsessed, self-centered and lonely, and whose moral standards have withered as a result.”―Jerusalem Post

“This major work in moral philosophy and theology should engage all readers, but particularly scholars, undergraduates, and graduate students.”
―Library Journal
