Vallejo Bookstore presents Bay Area author Rachel Raskin-Zrihen reading from her recent book "Jewish Community of Solano County" on Sunday, April 12, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. This event is free to the public.
Rachel Raskin-Zrihen moved from Los Angeles to Vallejo in 1996, was instrumental in establishing the local Jewish radio program Kol D'Var, and is a well-known journalist with the Vallejo Times-Herald. Arcadia Publishing, which published "Jewish Community of Solano County" in 2014, describes the book as one "[containing] images and stories of some of the Jews who have impacted Solano County...the story within these pages travels from the Old World to the edge of [California's] Gold Country, where there lives a tenacious, though often invisible, Jewish community." Ms Raskin-Zrihen will be joined by her co-authors Rachel Rae Moncharsh-Lessem and Shoshana Deutscher-Nurik.
