My Life In Dog Years is the autobiography of comedian, bestselling author, screenwriter, playwright and actress Rita Rudner. From a difficult childhood to dancing in New York at fifteen to becoming a Johnny Carson favorite to headlining in Las Vegas to motherhood, Rita wittily explains her eventful life journey. The one constant in her life has been her dogs –Tiny, Agatha, Bonkers, Twinkle and Betsy. She explains, “Across the decades, I have depended on the steady, non-judgmental, immensely-satisfying love that only dogs can bring.”

The End of Her is a story of a Jewish family’s immigration to the New World: rising from poverty to wealth as cattle dealers and (possibly) bootleggers, then shattering apart after a murder. It’s also the story of a present-day Jewish family, struggling with memory loss and mortality, trying to understand what earlier generations endured. A heavily researched true-crime family memoir, it alternates between past and present, relying on interviews, official documents, long-lost photos, and dozens of newspaper stories. It’s a story that spans Jewish time and geography, from the Catskills to Winnipeg’s North End, from a Ukrainian shtetl to Jersey City, from Greenwich Village to rural Saskatchewan, from suburban D.C. to the top of Masada.

George had it all. A love­ly wife. Two beau­ti­ful adult chil­dren. A con­do on the grounds of the Boca Raton Resort & Club. But when his wife dies, he’s alone in retire­ment. A lost man. Sure, he has his golf bud­dies to con­sole him. But when his friend Willy dies, George is caught off-guard. Why did Willy’s fam­i­ly stay away from the funer­al? Why did the check to the mor­tu­ary bounce? And why did George and his bud­dies have to pay to bury him? More impor­tant­ly, what can George learn from Willy’s life to escape mak­ing the same fool­ish mistakes?

This Joint JFS and JCC CABS program is a must! Join JFS to learn about local area resources that can support your aging plan for you and your loved ones.  Resources will include providers from a multitude of support systems – housing, social, medical, legal, financial and more!  Stay to hear Sharon Hoffman talk about her book, a con­cise and com­pre­hen­sive resource for peo­ple who are mid­dle-aged and beyond and are fac­ing the prospects of their own aging and of car­ing for elder­ly rel­a­tives — an often over­whelm­ing task for which lit­tle in life pre­pares us. Using an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary approach and many per­son­al anec­dotes, Sharona Hoff­man devel­ops rec­om­men­da­tions for build­ing sus­tain­able social, legal, med­ical, finan­cial, and oth­er sup­port sys­tems for aging and care­giv­ing. Aging with a Plan com­bines thor­ough research with engag­ing anec­dotes and prac­ti­cal advice. It cov­ers one-stop shop­ping for any­one in need of guid­ance with­out much time for inde­pen­dent research. The book answers ques­tions such as: What legal doc­u­ments should you be sure to have? What expens­es should you antic­i­pate in retire­ment and how do you save for them? What do you need to know about med­ical care as you or your loved ones grow old­er? How should you approach con­ver­sa­tions about the sen­si­tive top­ic of safe dri­ving with elder­ly loved ones? What options exist for end-of-life care, and how do you make sure that your wish­es will be followed?

Sacred to three faiths and revered by more than half the people on the planet, Jerusalem conjures up powerful images of the celestial.

Madam is the biog­ra­phy of Pol­ly Adler (1900−1962), the most infa­mous and influ­en­tial madam in Jazz Age New York. Her 1953 mem­oir, A House is Not A Home, sold 2 mil­lion books and became a 1963 movie star­ring Shel­ley Win­ters. More than a biog­ra­phy, this is a col­or­ful and unusu­al his­to­ry of Jew­ish life told through the per­spec­tive of a ​“good Jew­ish girl” from a Russ­ian shtetl who immi­grat­ed to Brook­lyn and rose to become ​“the female Al Capone” and one of the most renowned Jew­ish-Amer­i­can women in the 20th cen­tu­ry. Her broth­els were under­world salons that catered to every­one from the Van­der­bilts and the Rockefellers to Wal­ter Winchell, Frank Sina­tra, Desi Arnaz, the Algo­nquin Round­table, Dutch Schultz and Mey­er Lan­sky, and, it was rumored, Franklin D. Roo­sevelt.

Scheier’s moth­er, Judith, was a sin­gle moth­er whose devo­tion crossed the line into obses­sion, and — when in the grips of the men­tal ill­ness that plagued every day of her life — a vio­lent and abu­sive liar whose hold on real­i­ty was shaky at best. On an unevent­ful after­noon when Scheier was eigh­teen, her moth­er told her two impor­tant things: one, she had been mar­ried for most of Scheier’s life to a man she’d nev­er heard of, and two, the man she’d told Scheier was her father was entire­ly fic­tion­al. She’d made him up. Those two big lies were the start but not the end; it took dozens of small­er lies to sup­port them, and by the time she was done, she had built a far­ci­cal, half-true life for the two of them.

Based on her two-decade career as a local TV news reporter in New York City, Jen Max­field takes read­ers on a dra­mat­ic ride-along with her in the live truck, from the moment she gets the call to head to break­ing news, to arriv­ing at chaot­ic scenes, to knock­ing on doors of fam­i­lies who are griev­ing the loss of a loved one. Max­field revis­its ten mem­o­rable sto­ries, describ­ing in heart pounding detail how the events unfold­ed, through the eye­wit­ness per­spec­tives and her own. From a young man who lost both legs in a fer­ry crash, to an endurance ath­lete with stage-four lung can­cer; from a fifth grad­er on a doomed field trip, to an Ivy League under­grad sen­tenced to decades in prison, Max­field intro­duces read­ers to unfor­get­table peo­ple who will inspire you with their hope­ful­ness, even when con­fronting life’s great­est heart­breaks. Return­ing to the fam­i­lies years – even decades– after their sto­ries were fea­tured on the news gives Max­field an oppor­tu­ni­ty to ask the burn­ing ques­tion she had always pon­dered: what hap­pened after the live truck pulled away?

Simon Wiesen­thal was a Holo­caust sur­vivor who became inter­na­tion­al­ly famous for relent­less­ly pur­su­ing and bring­ing near­ly 1,100 Nazi war crim­i­nals to jus­tice. He is best known for his role in cap­tur­ing Adolf Eich­mann, the archi­tect of the Final Solution.

This award-win­ning one-man play, now avail­able in book form, begins on the day of his retire­ment when Simon Wiesen­thal invites one last group of stu­dents into his office. With warmth, wit, and sur­pris­ing humor, the famed ​“Nazi Hunter” recounts how he tracked down history’s most noto­ri­ous killers, warn­ing his young friends that although progress has been made since WWII, the human sav­age still lurks just below this wafer-thin veil of civ­i­liza­tion. Author Tom Dugan cap­tures the essence of this extra­or­di­nary man in the con­text of Holo­caust his­to­ry as well as the lega­cy he left behind.

To his sur­prise, he is quick­ly select­ed for a spe­cial assign­ment; the Allies are rac­ing to devel­op a nuclear weapon before the Nazis, and a Ger­man the­o­ret­i­cal physi­cist is hop­ing to defect. The physi­cist was a friend of his father, and Nathan’s mis­sion is to return to Berlin via France and smug­gle him out of Europe.

When Lily and Alex entered a packed gym­na­si­um in Queens, New York in 1972, they bare­ly rec­og­nized their son. The boy who escaped to Amer­i­ca with them, who was bul­lied as he strug­gled to learn Eng­lish and cope with fam­i­ly tragedy, was now a young man who had dis­cov­ered and secret­ly honed his bas­ket­ball tal­ent on the out­door courts of New York City. That young man was Ernie Grun­feld, who would go on to win an Olympic gold medal and reach pre­vi­ous­ly unimag­in­able heights as an NBA play­er and exec­u­tive. In By the Grace of the Game, Dan Grun­feld, once a bas­ket­ball stand­out him­self at Stan­ford Uni­ver­si­ty, shares the remark­able sto­ry of his fam­i­ly, a del­i­cate­ly inter­wo­ven nar­ra­tive that doesn’t lack in heart­break yet remains as deeply nour­ish­ing as his grandmother’s Hun­gar­i­an cook­ing, so lov­ing­ly described. The true improb­a­bil­i­ty of the saga lies in the dis­cov­ery of a game that unknow­ing­ly held the pow­er to heal wounds, build bridges, and tie togeth­er a frac­tured Jew­ish family.

Proof of Life: Twenty Days on the Hunt for a Missing Person in the Middle East

 

See More

Daniel Levin was in his New York office when he got a call from an acquaintance with an urgent, cryptic request to meet in Paris. A young man had gone missing in Syria. No government, embassy, or intelligence agency would help. Could he? Would he? So begins a suspenseful, shocking, and at times brutal true story of one man’s search to find a missing person in Syria over twenty tense days. Levin, a lawyer turned armed-conflict negotiator, chases leads throughout the Middle East, meeting with powerful sheikhs, drug lords, and sex traffickers in his pursuit of the truth.

In Proof of Life, Levin dives deep into the shadows—an underground industry of war where everything is for sale, including arms, drugs, and even people. He offers a fascinating study of how people use leverage to get what they want from one another and of a place where no one does a favor without wanting something in return, whether it’s immediately or years down the road.

The Memory Monster

 

See More

Written as a report to the chairman of Yad Vashem, Israel’s memorial to the victims of the Holocaust, our unnamed narrator recounts his own undoing. Hired as a promising young historian, he soon becomes a leading expert on Nazi methods of extermination at concentration camps in Poland during World War II and guides tours through the sites for students and visiting dignitaries. He hungrily devours every detail of life and death in the camps and takes pride in being able to recreate for his audience the excruciating last moments of the victims’ lives.

The job becomes a mission, and then an obsession. Spending so much time immersed in death, his connections with the living begin to deteriorate. He resents the students lost in their iPhones, singing sentimental songs, not expressing sufficient outrage at the genocide committed by the Nazis. In fact, he even begins to detect, in the students as well as himself, a hint of admiration for the murderers—their efficiency, audacity, and determination. Force is the only way to resist force, he comes to think, and one must be prepared to kill. The Memory Monster confronts difficult questions that are all too relevant to Israel and the world today: How do we process human brutality? What makes us choose sides in conflict? And how do we honor the memory of horror without becoming consumed by it?

The Upstander: How Surviving the Holocaust Sparked Max Glauben’s Mission to Dismantle Hate

 

See More

Holocaust survivor Max Glauben is on a mission—to outlast hate, to preserve memory, and to compel the world to embrace tolerance. The Nazis had destroyed the Glauben family’s business, upended their rights, and ultimately decimated their neighborhood. The deluge of questions would only intensify after the Nazis murdered Max’s mother, father, and brother. Max channeled grit, determination, and a fortuitous knack for manufacturing airplane parts to outlast six horrific concentration camps in his quest to survive.

This memoir explores Max’s mischievous childhood and teen years as a go-to ghetto smuggler. He reveals how he ached as he dared to court love and rear children. For decades, he bottled up his trauma. Then he realized: He could transform his pain into purpose. In the seventy-five years since his liberation, Max has ceased to ask himself, “Why me?” Instead, he reframes his focus, eager to partner with you and ask: “What can we do next?”

The Unexpected Spy: From the CIA to the FBI, My Secret Life Taking Down Some of the World’s Most Notorious Terrorist

 

See More

When Tracy Walder enrolled at the University of Southern California, she never thought that one day she would offer her pink beanbag chair in the Delta Gamma house to a CIA recruiter, or that she’d fly to the Middle East under an alias identity. The Unexpected Spy is the riveting story of Walder’s tenure in the CIA and, later, the FBI. In high-security, steelwalled rooms in Virginia, Walder watched al-Qaeda members with drones as President Bush looked over her shoulder and CIA Director George Tenet brought her donuts. She tracked chemical terrorists and searched the world for Weapons of Mass Destruction. She created a chemical terror chart that someone in the White House altered to convey information she did not have or believe, leading to the Iraq invasion. Driven to stop terrorism, Walder debriefed terrorists—men who swore they’d never speak to a woman—until they gave her leads. She followed trails through North Africa, Europe, and the Middle East, shutting down multiple chemical attacks.

Then Walder moved to the FBI, where she worked in counterintelligence. In a single year, she helped take down one of the most notorious foreign spies ever caught on American soil. Catching the bad guys wasn’t a problem in the FBI, but rampant sexism was. Walder left the FBI to teach young women, encouraging them to find a place in the FBI, CIA, State Department or the Senate—and thus change the world.
