This group regularly meets on the first Monday evening of the month, but this discussion was moved to the second Monday due to Labor Day.

The “Neighbors Book Group” focuses on books dealing with the immigration and settling in America pro- cess. This moving collection of fiction features some of the nation’s brightest voices on the complex and profound subject of race and ethnicity in America. The collection includes excerpts from modern classics by acclaimed authors including Toni Morrison, Amy Tan, Sandra Cisneros, and E.L. Doctorow, dealing with the often contradictory, sometimes humorous process of reconciling personal identity with perceived ideals of American culture. The Glen Rock Public Library is located at 315 Rock Road. Glen Rock Jewish Center plans events The Glen Rock Jewish Center will hold an informational meeting on Thursday, Sept. 10 at 7:30 p.m. regarding the February 2010 trip to Israel.

By traveling at an off-peak season, just prior to President’s Day week, the cost of the trip can be kept low, and the more people who join the trip, the lower the cost will be.
