Sisterhood Book Club

Come join with fellow Sisterhood members (other CBEers welcome, too!) for great discussion and refreshments at members' homes, as we discuss a variety of books, some with Jewish content, some not.

Please contact Debbie & Denise to join the Sisterhood Book Club and receive regular emails with dates and Zoom links (and eventually meeting locations), or with questions.
