Many thanks to Emily for pushing this message out.
Just to add a little more info, I’m looking for 10 books to create a yearlong
celebration, so it would be any book that would illustrate, illuminate,
interpret any one of the commandments, thereby giving me one per month. I would
then hope to have one of our faculty members facilitate a discussion of the
book, and how it relates to the commandment.
I of course am hoping for Jewish fiction (Jewish author, Jewish culture, Jewish
history), but as a great non-Jewish example, when thinking of the commandment
regarding worshipping a false god, I think of A Christmas Carol…
Ebenezer Scrooge worshipping money…but of course false gods come in all shapes…
Thanks for any suggestions,

Subject: Adult Fiction that Illustrate the 10 Commandments
I have a colleague at a Jesuit university here who's library has been leading
an adult, Jewish book group for the community for the past 10 years. To
celebrate the 10 years, she's thinking of finding a book (hopefully fiction)
that illustrates each of the 10 Commandments…so in other words, a book that
deals with honoring one’s parents, a novel that has a plot about someone who
covets his neighbor’s wife, etc.
If you can think of some titles for her, contact Rhonda Rosen directly at
