Book Order: The Color of Love by Marra B. Gad

Join Cantor Shapiro for a book group discussion Sept 16th @ 8pm
Prior to the Yom Kippur appearance of Marra B. Gad
Winner of the 2020 Midwest Book Award in Autobiography/Memoir, The Color of Love: A Story of a Mixed Race Jewish Girl, is an unforgettable memoir about a mixed-race Jewish woman who, after fifteen years of estrangement from her racist great-aunt, helps bring her home when Alzheimer's strikes. The Color of Love is available for purchase through University Synagogue for a deeply discounted price of $10 each (If purchased through Amazon, they are $17, with Prime its $12.89. ) and when you purchase through the synagogue, your book will come with a signed bookplate.

Yom Kippur Appearance for Members:
A conversation with Marra B. Gad & Cantor Kerith Spencer-Shapiro addressing racial equality and racial justice in North America as a Jewish issue. Marra’s personal journey is reflected in her memoir, The Color of Love, which they will also discuss. In black spaces, she was not “black enough.” In Jewish spaces, she was mistaken for the help, asked to leave, or worse. Even in her own extended family, racism bubbled to the surface. Join Marra and Cantor Shapiro for this conversation and Q&A session, which, in our current climate, is timelier than ever. 

Reading Marra’s book prior to joining the conversation will enable you as a participant to have a greater takeaway from this program.
