What is “On the Same Page?” It is a community read initiative for Charlotte’s Jewish community. The big idea is that everyone in the community will share the experience of reading and discussing the same Jewish book. The culmination of the Community Read is an event featuring the author of the selected book. There are two programs each year – “On the Same Page: Chapter I” in the Fall, and “On the Same Page: Chapter II” in the Spring.
