Event description

Description

Welcome to the inaugural TribeKC book club! Periodically we will read and discuss a book that has some pertinence to the young Jewish experience.

For February, Courtney will be hosting and we will be reading "Sushi in Ramallah" by Michael Lieberman. The book is witty, satirical, and an easy read. Think Wet Hot American Summer but for Birthright.

Synopsis: Adam Solomon is a law student who’s just embarked on a ten-day trip to Israel via The Sababa Project. But when Adam meets the peers who will accompany him, he soon realizes that ten days on a luxury bus is far worse than forty years in the desert. Adam finds himself disgusted by the hypocrisy of his busmates, whose newfangled faith in Judaism is repeatedly contradicted by their depraved behavior. Directing the program is Momo Kafritz, a middle-aged Israeli wrecking ball who imposes his will on the tour. Led by Momo, Adam and his busmates walk unwittingly into tourist traps, propagandist rallies, and four star hotels. Moreover, Solomon struggles to find what separates him from the Jewish-American royalty with which he shares the same rooms, drinks, and drugs.

The cost of the event is $10 which includes the book at a subsidized cost, as well as sushi and other refreshments.

The book is in limited release at Politics and Prose in DC, so we have acquired several books in advance for you. Upon registration, we will coordinate with you for book pickup. All others will have to be purchased here: https://www.politics-prose.com/book/9781624291777 (note it may about a week to arrive).

Hope you can make it!
