A Celebration of Jewish Books

People of the Book, meet your match!
Join us for a day filled with Jewish storytelling and storytellers — more than 50 in all —
some you already know and love, others you’ll be thrilled to discover.

Listen to and meet authors whose work reflects the dazzling diversity of the Jewish book world, from crime to Yiddish culture, Jewish cooking to historical fiction and serious biographies.

To make sure that the next generation learns to embrace our reading tradition, we’ve arranged a special kids corner with Jewish storytellers, live music and special activities. And you won’t want to go home without visiting our pop-up bookstore, where you may choose from an exciting array of hundreds of titles to add to your Jewish home library.

The next 5,000 years of conversation begins here!
