Book Club

The Tiferet Israel Book Club meets every other month at 7:30 PM on the second Tuesday of the month, barring conflicts with festivals and/or critical community functions.  The Book Club meets at Tiferet Israel in the Multipurpose Room, where readers from a wide spectrum of the Dallas Jewish Community enjoy light refreshments and great discussion, led by Sonia Meltzer.  While it is certainly advantageous to read the book in advance, it is not a requirement for attendance.
