  • Temple Emanu-El 8500 Hillcrest Road Dallas, TX USA (map)

The Israel Book Club is led by Robert Epstein and meets once a month, at 1 pm after the Sisterhood Nosh, at Temple Emanu-El in Dallas TX. 

 This Month’s Discussion: 

Let There Be Water: Israel’s Solution for a Water-Starved World By Seth M. Siegel

 The U.S. government predicts that forty of our fifty states-and 60 percent of the earth’s land surface-will soon face alarming gaps between available water and the growing demand for it. Without action, food prices will rise, economic growth will slow, and political instability is likely to follow.

Let There Be Water illustrates how Israel can serve as a model for the United States and countries everywhere by showing how to blunt the worst of the coming water calamities. Even with 60 percent of its country made of desert, Israel has not only solved its water problem; it also had an abundance of water. Israel even supplies water to its neighbors-the Palestinians and the Kingdom of Jordan-every day.

Let There Be Water also tells unknown stories of how cooperation on water systems can forge diplomatic ties and promote unity.
