Top recommendation from DC's Cross River Dialogue, a group of white Jews living west of the Anacostia and Black non-Jews living and/or working east of the river...including at CMCB and We Act Radio.
Entertaining read, shaking up some beliefs about Jewish and Black communities. NECESSARY for anyone active in Jewish life. Complex plot includes a relatively ordinary job search, the not-so-ordinary dating struggles of an African-American Orthodox Jew, and a positively Machiavellian scheme at the intersection of religion, law, politics, and money.
