Beth El Temple Women's Network, in partnership with Voices of Hope, proudly presents our 2021 Book in the Sukkah event!


Julie Metz, author of Eva and Eve: A Search for My Mother's Lost Childhood and What a War Left Behind, will join us in the sukkah now on Zoom to discuss this unforgettable memoir of her late mother's harrowing childhood in Nazi-occupied Austria and the parallels she sees in present-day America.

Please plan to pick up your catered meal between 5pm and 5:30pm on Sunday, September 26th.

To Julie Metz, her mother, Eve, was the quintessential New Yorker. Eve rarely spoke about her childhood and it was difficult to imagine her living anywhere else except Manhattan. After her mother passed, Julie discovered a keepsake book filled with farewell notes from friends and relatives addressed to a ten-year-old girl named Eva. This long-hidden memento was the first clue to the secret pain that Julie’s mother had carried as a refugee and immigrant, shining a light on a family that had to persevere at every turn to escape the anti-Semitism and xenophobia that threatened their survival.
