My Jewish Learning Book Club: The Assistant by Bernard Malamud

Hosted By: My Jewish Learning

Join My Jewish Learning’s new monthly book club based on our Great Jewish Books email series. This book discussion group will let you dive deep into a celebrated Jewish novel from the past century, help you understand its historical context and key themes, and give you an opportunity to talk about it with other readers from all over the world.

In July, we will be reading and discussing The Assistant by Bernard Malamud. Malamud’s 1957 novel masterfully explores Jewish identity through the story of Morris Buber, a grocer, and his struggle for survival in Depression-era Brooklyn. You can buy the book here.

Discussion will be led by Julia Bosson, writer, writing teacher, and Fulbright Scholar.
