Mandel JCC Festival of Books - Peter Lovenheim
Book Title:  In the Neighborhood: The Search for Community on an American Street, One Sleepover at a Time

"If we all took its lessons to heart, our world would be a different, and better, place." – Andrea Barrett, National Book Award-winning author

Peter Lovenheim is a journalist whose articles and essays have appeared in The New York Times, USA Today, and New York magazine.  

Today, for most American Jews, community means life in a multi-cultural city or a sprawling suburb where many of us no longer know "all the neighbors," or sometimes not even the people next door.  Only after a brutal murder-suicide rocked the neighborhood, did Lovenheim, who has lived on the same street in suburban Rochester, NY most of his life, begin a search to meet and know his neighbors.  Lovenheim, however, does more than just introduce himself. He asks his neighbors, ever so politely, if he can sleep over.  With a distinctly Jewish sensibility, In the Neighborhood takes us inside the homes, minds and hearts of Lovenheim's neighbors and asks a thought-provoking question: Do neighborhoods matter – and is something lost when we live as strangers next door? Julia Robert's Production Company has selected In the Neighborhood, for an upcoming film.
