In July 2018, a Gallup poll found that "Immigration Surged to the Top" of the list of what Americans identified as the most important problems facing our nation.  Not surprising.  Dominating political discussions and featured daily in the news, immigration has become a most troubling and controversial issue, prompting soul-searching and discussions about the essence of America.  How might the history of Jewish immigration to the United States in the early 20th century shed light on the experiences of immigrants today? Join our discussion of "Newcomersthe theme of the first Literature and Lunch on October 20.  We will discuss a mix of short stories and excerpts from actual accounts: 
 "The Lie" by Mary Antin (1913)
            "Fanny Herself" by Edna Ferber (1917)
            "A Walker in the City" by Alfred Kazin (1951)
            "Bronx Primitive" by Kate Simon (1982)
We recommend that you read the stories before our meetings so that we can enjoy lively discussions in which all participate.  Click on each title to read online or copies of the materials are available in the Kol HaLev room. To view the readings for the December gathering click here.
