Hazak Book Group

Hazak Book Group (55+)

This monthly book group reads fiction and nonfiction books of Jewish interest written mostly, but not solely, by Jewish writers, and the books are chosen by the group.  

This month:  A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Hosseini

Meets at 10:00 a.m.:  Sep 14; Oct 19; Nov 9; Dec 14; Jan 11; Feb 8; Mar 8; Apr 19; May 10; June 14; July 12; Aug 9


HAZAK  programs are planned for our seniors (age 55+) and are geared to both reflect common interests and get us to “stretch” to try new activities as well.   Our well-attended book group meets monthly all year long on the third Wednesday morning of the month.  HAZAK also sponsors book talks by local authors, including GJC members, as well as speakers on topics of particular importance to our interests.  We host Sam Feinberg each August to discuss opera, and we show great films!

We take day trips to cultural and natural sites in the area, often to places members have never been (like the Philadelphia Waterworks and Chanticleer Gardens), and plan tours to institutions such as the Kimmel Center and Academy of Music (look for these in 2016-17).

HAZAK is for all of us to stay connected to GJC and to each other:  to venture out and experience parts of our city we haven't seen before, to read, learn and talk together, to keep us strong.   We hope you will join us.
