AJ’s Book Club

April 10, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Passover Haggadah reminds us to open our homes to “all who are hungry.” In keeping with this theme, the Adath Jeshurun Book Club welcomes guest facilitator, Karyn Moskowitz, Executive Director of New Roots, sponsor of Louisville’s Fresh Stops. Karyn will lead a discussion of “The Stop: How the fight for good food transformed a community and inspired a movement” by Nick Saul and Andrea Curtis. ($14)

Beyond “evil” food banks: The Stop is Saul’s stubborn insistence that food banks are basically evil…Food banks mute the pressure on government to live up to its responsibility to face poverty head-on…The Stop is part community development primer, part policy guide, part cry for justice, but mostly it’s an endearing story of people who came together to build something this country hasn’t seen before – and if the story continues on its current trajectory, will soon be changing cities across North America one nieghborhood at a time.” (www.urbanfoodrevolution.com)
