Mazornet's Jewish Book Club

Can you think of a better way of celebrating Judaism and things Jewish than the celebration our writers, our literature, and our history?

Maybe.  But arguably, intellectual pursuit was always highly regarded and admired in our culture.  We are known as the "Nation of the Book"  -- yes, the old testament, but also, statistically speaking, Jews buy more books per capita than any other ethnic group.  (Well, at least in Israel, they do.) 

In this spirit,, and Jewish Celebrations are happy to embark on this new venture. The MazorNet Book Club!


Being Jewish for many of us is not only a religion or an ethnic designation, but a cultural existence.  Here in the United States, our culture enmeshed itself with the American.  But we arrived at where we are today (and where is that?) --  after a long and interesting journey; a  journey worth taking...again.

There are multiple books depicting the many facets of Jewish life in America, and in time we will read many of them... but to begin -- Mazornet Book Club chose...  (Drum beat -- the excitement is building)

1. An Empire of Their Own : How the Jews Invented Hollywood  by the noted film critic Neal Gabler, who writes a provocative and richly entertaining biography of the five Jewish men who were the moving forces behind the creation of America's motion picture industry.
