Through 21 meticulously researched accounts — some chronicled in book form for the first time — Rappaport illuminates the defiance of tens of thousands of Jews across 11 Nazi-occupied countries during World War II.
Robinson’s “Beyond Politics” highlights the lives of 18 different Israelis and bids people to expand their understanding of what is going on in Israel today by focusing not on current events, but on the lives of its many people.
Book festival Co-Chair Ina Enoch said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with Congregation Etz Chaim and Temple Kol Emeth. We are also pleased to bring two Book Festival of the MJCCA programs to our wonderful East Cobb community.”
Book Festival Co-Chair Sherie Gumer said, “During the Book Festival of the MJCCA, our community comes together to explore, learn, and be uplifted together by 50-plus extraordinary authors — bringing these meaningful programs to Dunwoody, Intown Atlanta, and east Cobb.”
Additionally, Project GIVE’s Passport to Literacy program is Book Festival of the MJCCA community action project whose mission is to collect new and gently used children’s books (ages infant to 13) to support shelters, hospitals, and schools throughout Atlanta.
