Book Discussion: Finding a Bride and Other Adventures of a Jewish Mother in India

June 4, 2017 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Join us on Sunday, June 4 at 10:30am as Ellen Goldberg visits HCRJ to discuss her book, Finding a Bride and Other Adventures of a Jewish Mother in India.

What happens when Umesh “Mike” Jain, a young company comptroller, takes his boss’ wife to help him search for a suitable marriage partner in India? The heart-warming, sometimes humorous account, has some unexpected revelations. Based on Ellen Goldberg’s 1982 journal, this book is the unique story of her first trip out of the United States.

Using excerpts from the book, Ellen will tell stories of her adventures. She will discuss how her experience in India launched her passion to unite communities through international work. She has done extensive work with “Sister Cities” and other organizations. Ellen will also tell us about international opportunities in Houston to build peace and solve problems in the world.

Copies of the book are available for $20 at the temple office. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book will go back to HCRJ.

Indian pastries and Chai Tea will accompany our discussion on June 4. To sign up, please contact Justin at 713-782-4162 or admin@hcrj.org.
