Lilith -- a Jewish book club for women
One of the area's newest book clubs is Lilith, which started this spring at Beth El Congregation in the Pikesville area. It was organized by Lindsay Kleiman, who had a similar club at the University of Maryland, College Park. The theme: literature by Jewish women or about Jewish women. "I'd like people to be able to develop their perspective on Jewish women outside the religious ideal ..." she says. "It's not that people have narrow views [of women], they don't have views at all. ... Women are under-represented in Jewish literature."
