Friday, September 20
Temple Beth Abraham Book Club. 10:00 a.m. Weather permitting, we will have our discussion outside in Temple Beth Abraham's Sukkah. The Ministry of Special Cases by Nathan Englander. In the heart of Argentina's Dirty War, Kaddish Poznan struggles with a son who won't accept him; strives for a wife who forever saves him; and spends his nights protecting the good name of a community that denies his existence. When the nightmare of the disappeared children brings the Poznan family to its knees, they are thrust into the unyielding corridors of the Ministry of Special Cases, a terrifying, byzantine refuge of last resort. Through the devastation of a single family, Englander brilliantly captures the grief of a nation. $2 suggested donation for non-members. www.tba-ny.org
