BIG RAPIDS — The book discussion at Ferris State University began yesterday, centering around Aviva Cantor’s “Jewish Women/Jewish Men: the Legacy of Patriarchy in Jewish Life.

The event took place at the FLITE library, room 405. Visitors were provided with refreshments and delicious snacks such as vegetable wraps, pita bread and hummus, as well as free books. More than a dozen students, faculty and community members attended.

The discussion focused on the first part of Cantor’s book, which examined Jewish myth and law related to sex, marriage and family life.

Two more discussions will take place before Cantor comes to Ferris in April. The next will occur toward the end of February. The events are free and open to the public. (Pioneer photos/Elizabeth Badovinac)
