CBS Everyone's Book Club

All CBS community members are invited to join the CBS Everyone’s Book Club. Relax with a good book and then join us for a lively and engaging discussion.  Everyone is welcome to participate.  It doesn't matter if you enjoyed the book, or perhaps you didn't enjoy the book, or even if you haven't finished it. The books are selected by the group and represent a variety of genres, all with a connection to Jewish history or culture.

All meetings are currently held via Zoom. You do not need to attend all the sessions to participate. Come to a few or go to them all! For more information, contact Anna at
