Shabbat Lunch with Author Maggie Anton

Saturday, February 11, 2023 20 Shevat 5783

12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

A Shabbat lunch for our community, especially those of us interested in love, faith, and the Talmud! Our guest at lunch will be Maggie Anton, an award-winning author and novelist as well as a Talmud scholar with expertise in Jewish women’s history.

Maggie Anton will be with us in person to discuss her current book, The Choice, a wholly transformative novel that takes character inspired by Chaim Potok’s classic novel, The Chosen, and ages them into young adults in Brooklyn in the 1950s. The Choice is a powerful love story with a purpose: to challenge the ways Jewish texts have been interpreted unfavorably toward women and their religious opportunities in Jewish life.

Read the book if you can, and whether you’ve read it or not, come join us for a lively and insightful discussion after our Shabbat lunch on February 11.

Please register for lunch below.

You may purchase the book below as well.
