The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires' Connecting with Community series will be joined by Fedora Horowitz, author and concert pianist, on her historical novel Jaffa Beach.
Living amongst Arabs and Jews in Israel inspired her to write Jaffa Beach published in 2013. The novel starts in 1943 with the story of Shifra, born into a strict Orthodox family, promised to be married to a much older man. She flees to Jaffa Beach, a place she has always dreamed about. Jaffa Beach is a look into life in Palestine before the Jewish State.
This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
