Book space

A space for young adults, good readers, to meet and share, laugh and grow together, all with the backdrop of Judaism

The book always had an important role in Jewish life, characterising us, thus, as a nation of interpreters. But what does it mean to share from the tradition of Jewish literature? What could be so special in a reading dynamic inspired by Judaism? And in which way could such dynamic be able to enrich our reading experience about themes that are, very often, absolutely secular?

Thinking of these and many other questions about Judaism and literature, we sought to create Sifriá: a virtual community interested in fulfilling the interest on Jewish culture through a debate on books.


How does our community work?
We meet monthly – always on Sunday mornings – to discuss a specific book.
Before each monthly meeting, the members receive a reading file made exclusively for our group, with information on the author and the work, some questions for discussion, supporting texts and, of course, a recipe inspired by the work. After all, wouldn’t this mix of books and good food have been responsible for the preservation of our cultural tradition throughout the centuries?
This, at least, is one of the several hypotheses examined in the first book discussed by our group.
Come find out what that book is, and be part of the construction of this space with us!
