Be a part of the discussion of this year’s selection, The Last Watchman of Old
Cairo by Michael David Lukas. This poignant and moving novel is a tightly-woven
multi-generational novel centered around the Ibn Ezra Synagogue in Cairo. The story
of the protagonist Joseph’s family is entwined with that of the British twin sisters
who, in 1897, rescued texts that have begun to disappear from the synagogue and
opened a whole new world of Jewish history that was hidden for centuries.
Instructor: Rabbi Eric Yanoff of Adath Israel Synagogue. These three classes are part of Golden Slipper Gems on the Main Line January series.
