      Beth El Temple Book Club Celebrates Jewish Book Month
      With Larry Tye, author of

      Superman: The High-Flying History of America’s Most Enduring Hero

      Tuesday, November 19 at Beth El Temple


      7:00 p.m. Author Larry Tye discusses Superman on the 75th anniversary of this comic phenomenon followed by a Q & A session. Tye is a former award-winning journalist with the Boston Globe and author of Satchel, The Life and Times of an American Legend.

      8:30 p.m. Book Signing and Super Desserts: Make Your Own Sundae and Superman Birthday Cake

      Even Superman’s most fervent fans may not know this about the Man of Steel: He is Jewish, or at least the inspiration for his creation derives from the yearnings and aspirations of his Jewish creators. Jerry Siegel, story writer, and Joe Shuster, artist, were students at Cleveland’s Glenville High School when they first conceived Superman, imbuing him with the strength and daring they felt their own lives lacked.
      Their evolving Superman character took on the role of social activist, righting wrongs and fighting for social justice and against tyranny, be it crooked businessmen and politicians, Hitler, Stalin, or the Ku Klux Klan.

      Who would publish this fanciful tale of an iconic hero with superhuman strengths and moral fortitude? Enter Jack Liebowitz of Detective Comics, Inc., a hardheaded but visionary entrepreneur. The ups and downs, struggles and challenges, fortunes and misfortunes in the lives of Siegel and Shuster represent a story we can all relate to in Larry Tye’s Superman: The High Flying History of America’s Most Enduring Hero.

      Patron $75 includes signed book, dessert and reserved seating.
      General Admission $18 includes dessert

      Students $10 includes dessert

      Anyone wearing a Superman cape or costume: $5 off admission

      New Jewish Economic Values Blog Created Locally
      The new Just Market Blog discusses contemporary economic issues in the context of Jewish source texts.
      Torah and Talmud point to a set of enduring economic values which viewed as a whole comprise a guide to equitable, balanced social policies—even in the modern age. Those values not only resonate with a contemporary progressive sensibility; they also support—and can motivate—advocacy, and especially Jewish advocacy, for economic and social justice.
      Please join the online discussion at www.thejustmarketblog.com. Recent posts include brief analyses of food stamp reductions, the unemployment rate and manipulation of commodity markets by investment banks.
      And please— if you know others who might be interested in this forum, please pass along this invitation.
