On Wednesday, November 29, from 4:30 to 6 pm we invite you to join us at The End to discover Jewish books to select for yourself, or for your next book club. Non-fiction, poetry, literary fiction, even romance. Talk with others, discover authors and books to celebrate all those of Jewish faith. Some of the titles we either have in the store are listed below.
Jewish Book Month traces its origins to Fanny Goldstein’s 1920s creation of Jewish Book Week. In 1927, Jewish communities across the country adopted the week-long celebration, timing the events to coincide with Shavuot. In 1940, the event was shifted to the month before Hanukkah, when it is still observed today.
Excitement and enthusiasm built for the numerous activities planned across the country, and in 1943 Jewish Book Week was extended to Jewish Book Month. One year later, Fanny Goldstein’s National Committee for Jewish Book Week was transformed into the Jewish Book Council.
