JBook - Book Club

All of our meetings are at Temple Or Rishon on the 4th Monday of the month at 7 p.m. via Zoom Everyone is welcome, even if you haven't read the book. We have great noshes and we love shmoozing - about the books and all kinds of other things.

Some books can be found in your local library. Ordering online usually is cheapest if you buy the books. Amazon.com seems to have the best prices overall and if you order multiple new titles at a time and spend $35, you can choose free shipping. They also have used books and electronic ones. We encourage you access Amazon from the TOR website, you pay the same price, and you also do a Mitzvah as TOR gets a fee from Amazon!  Go to www.orrishon.org, choose Support Or Rishon, then Amazon.com.

Abebooks.com and Alibris.com are other sites for used books.
