Join us for
KJA JEWISH BOOK MONTH & Community-Wide Global Day of Learning
Featuring Author Julie Salamon
Weekend of November 18-21 2016
The Knoxville Jewish Alliance welcomes Julie Salamon, an American journalist, film and television critic, and author. Her book, The Devil's Candy: The Anatomy of a Hollywood Fiasco, is used as a text in many university film classes. She receives many requests to speak about Rambam's Ladder: A Meditation on Generosity and Why It Is Necessary to Give. She was born in Ohio, lived in an Appalachian town, and currently resides in New York City, where she also serves as her synagogue's president. Salamon is also the cousin of our own Ilana Siman Tov.
