The July KOH Book Club meeting will be held Tuesday, July 19, 2011 at 7 p.m. Leslie Cohen will be leading our discussion of the book , "The Frozen Rabbi", by Steve Stern.

Stern’s uproarious and trouncing romp through the anguish and ironies of the Jewish diaspora matches mysticism with mayhem, beatitude with organized crime, creativity with crassness. The madcap, at times, surreal action revolves around Rabbi Eliezer ben Zephyr, whose out-of-body journeys to the realm of the divine result in his being frozen in a block of ice in the Jewish Pale in 1889, a frigid relic that becomes one family’s problematic inheritance.

Newcomers always welcome!
