One Book, One Rodfei Zedek

One Book, One Rodfei Zedek is meant to stimulate conversations, both formal and informal, including several discussion sessions throughout the year.

In 5783 One Book, One Rodfei Zedek returns to its traditional format, where congregants vote for the selection of their choice.  During the High Holidays, you'll have a chance to look over the options for this year in the atrium.  Once you've made your decision, vote online by Friday, October 21.
