The first Hadassah Book Group of 2023 will meet on Sunday, April 2 at 1 p.m. at the home of Chair, Deborah Cohen.

You can also join in on Zoom.

The book is:  “The Matchmaker’s Gift” by Lynda Cohen Liogman.

Kindly RSVP to Deborah at deborah.cohen2468@gmail.com to receive the Zoom link and Deborah’s address.

About the book: A delightful story about a grandmother and her granddaughter.

Even as a 10-year-old immigrating to America, Sara realizes she has a special gift in knowing how to make wonderful matches between soulmates.

The problem is that the older Orthodox matchmaker men in New York’s lower east side see her as a dangerous threat to their traditions and livelihood.  Sara must make her matches in secret, later fighting for the recognition she deserves.

Two generations later, Abby is a successful divorce attorney who inherits her grandmother’s journals with details of the matches she made.  Reading the journals brings insights but also many doubts to Abby, who must now forge a new path of her own.

Happy reading!
