Jewish Book Month - Selections to discover

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.
