Tomorrow There Will Be Apricots,
by Jessica Soffer
Wednesday, December 11, 11:00 AM, at The Woodlands Clubhouse
Thursday, December 12, 7:30 PM, at the JCC
Soffer's novel tells a poignant story of love, acceptance and memory in the unusual pairing of an Iraqi Jewish widow haunted by the daughter she had given away four decades before and a young teen-age girl who yearns to bring satisfaction to her mother by learning to make a dish she seemed to yearn for. The two meet improbably and feed off of each other’s hopes and desires, as well as a mouth-watering menu of Iraqi culinary specialties. Beautifully written with a deep understanding of both woman and girl, the book is a first novel for Jessica Soffer, daughter of an Iraqi Jewish artist, whose imagination and versatility bode well for her future (Moment Magazine).
Annual New Years Rockin’ Party with Mr. Ray!
Monday, December 30
Leon & Toby Cooperman JCC | West Orange
Mr. RAY (Ray Andersen) honed his skills jamming with Bruce Springsteen, playing guitar and keyboards for Meat Loaf, and writing and singing his tunes in Blue Van Gogh, an indie band with his wife. He has released three albums and two DVDs over the past decade. His songs are all over Blues Clues, Radio Disney, and XM Kids, to name a few. This rocking family-friendly show shouldn’t be missed. Simply put: “It’s music for the kid in ALL of us!”
