For more than a decade, the Jewish Short Story group has met to discuss stories of Jewish interest. Over the years, we’ve covered stories by everyone from Bernard Malamud, Amos Oz, and Edith Perlman, to newer discoveries like Etgar Keret and Rebecca Goldstein. Stories have ranged from the tragic to the comic but are all accessible and enlightening.

An atmostphere of friendly repartee is encouraged, and the discussion is freewheeling and open-ended. We encourage new and veteran readers alike to join one of the most delightful hours you can spend talking and discussing.
