  • Thursday, May 19, 12:00 Noon: Senior Connections Book Group in the church Parlor. This month we will be reading and discussing Ghetto: The Invention of a Place, the History of an Idea, by Mitchell Duneier. The author traces the idea of the ghetto from its beginnings in the sixteenth century and its revival by the Nazis to the present.
