CSAIR Book Discussion Group:, by Nathan Englander

Sunday, September 22, 10:30 AM

Larry is the secular son in a family of Orthodox Brooklyn Jews. When his father dies, it's his responsibility to recite the Kaddish, the Jewish prayer for the dead, every day for eleven months. To the horror and dismay of his sister, Larry refuses-imperiling the fate of his father's soul. To appease her, Larry hatches an ingenious if cynical plan, hiring a stranger through a website called to recite the prayer and shepherd his father's soul safely to rest.

Free and open to all. 

Coordinated by Sharon Kern-Taub.
