Reading Women: A Muslim-Jewish Book Gathering

NEW DATE: February 26, 2017

All women of Ahmadiyya Mosque, Delta and  Or ShalomSynagogue, Vancouver are warmly invited to the discussion of the novel,

“The Red Tent” by Anita Diamant.

A New York Times Bestseller

A decade after the publication of this hugely popular international bestseller, Picador releases the tenth anniversary edition of The Red Tent.

Her name is Dinah. In the Bible, her life is only hinted at in a brief and violent detour within the more familiar chapters of the Book of Genesis that tell of her father, Jacob, and his twelve sons.

Deeply affecting, The Red Tent combines rich storytelling with a valuable achievement in modern fiction: a new view of biblical women’s lives.

When: Sunday, Feb. 26, 2017 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm.

Where: Or  Shalom Synagogue, 710 East 10th Ave., Vancouver.

Facilitator: Susan Shamash

RSVP: Susan Shamash at

In order to maximize on the experience, please be sure to read the book in advance.

Or Shalom women, please bring a sweet or a savory afternoon tea item to share with our guests. Thank you!
