NCJW, West Morris Section Paid-Up Membership Brunch Nov. 12: THE UNEASY BALANCE: ASSIMILATION VS. MAINTAINING JEWISH TRADITION

And her latest novel, “Babylon,” centers around this very question. Cameron will be the special guest speaker for the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW), West Morris Paid-Up Membership Brunch on Sunday, Nov. 12, at 10 a.m. at a private home in Mendham.
