The Book of Ruth Club 

If you like to read and you're a curious person, you'll want to know about the Temple's Book of Ruth Club.                                                                                                            

In 2012, a group created the Temple Book Club. Meeting once a month in Temple, homes or restaurants, the members chose the books and planned the discussions, reading books of wide-ranging topics. Early on books had to be about "something Jewish," or be by a Jewish author. Later on, the criteria changed to Jewish topics, or something related to Jewish values. We found we can relate just about anything to Jewish values! It was very well received and became a wonderful addition to Temple programs. Over the years, we've read and reviewed 10-12 books a year, providing a unique and valuable additions.

 New members have joined over the years but the founding members remain. One of those was Ruth Waidley, a very interesting woman who loved and contributed to this Club.  Ruth passed away in 2022 and the group missed her greatly.  It was decided to honor  Ruth's memory by naming the Club after her. Thus, The Book Of Ruth Club. 

All congregants are encouraged to attend, and new members are welcome at any time! We meet both in person and by Zoom. Another wonderful way to bring Temple into your life.  Fun, learning, companionship, new friends - that's what the Book of Ruth Club is all about. Please join us!

- In memory of one of its founding members, Ruth Waidley
