Our next book for discussion is The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, by Daniel James Brown. (Click here for the description.)

We will meet at Janel and Richard’s home on Friday, August 21st, beginning at 6:00 pm.  We’ll combine it with a pot luck, so try to bring a dish that is somehow related to the book (no matter how crazy the stretch!).  We’ll start with informal book discussion and fun food, and see where the conversation takes us!

We’ll also develop a list of upcoming books, so please come with your ideas!

Congregation Beth Shalom: Who Are We?

Beth Shalom is a Jewish community in Bozeman, Montana, which prays with joy and meaning, celebrates the history and traditions of Judaism, and cares and nurtures one another. We love to study and we offer many adult and child education opportunities.

We are committed to equal participation and status for men and women, those of all sexual orientations, and others who have been marginalized in Jewish life in the past. We welcome all Jews and interfaith families, at all stages of life. We strive to eliminate any conflict between Judaism and modernity, fully embracing science as consistent with our understanding of G!d and Jewish tradition.

We are involved in g’millut chasadim (acts of loving-kindness) and tikun olam (repairing the world), engaging in social justice work throughout local and global communities. We are deeply committed to interfaith dialogue in which we understand that all religions offer access to G!d and spiritual growth through their respective traditions. And we embrace a global vision of the role of human beings and their individual spiritual paths in the transformation of our precious planet … read more
