There is the thread in the Historical fiction forum in which they list books of that genre that are available in the system, either because they posted them or becuase they found them when doing a search.  I thought it might be a good idea to have one in the Jewish forum as well.  So if you see any Jewish books available, feel free to post a link to them in this thread!

I just posted Black, White, and Jewish by Rebecca Walker.  It's on my shelf if anyone is interested.

Sheryl,  I couldn't stay interested in that book.  I gave it my 50 page criteria and it failed.   LOL

I have The Promise by Chaim Potok on my shelf. It's a paperback, copyright 1969. Not beautiful, but postable.

I love Chaim Potok's books and am collecting them, but I have another copy of this particular title.

The Ladies Auxiliary by Tova Mirvis

The Last Jewish Shortstop in America by Lowell Komie
