The Jewish Book Council is a not-for-profit organization devoted exclusively to the promotion of Jewish-interest literature. Through an ever-growing list of projects and programs, the Jewish Book Council serves as a catalyst for the writing, publication, distribution, reading and public awareness of books that reflect the rich variety of the Jewish experience. 

As the literary arm of the organized American Jewish community, the Jewish Book Council’s presence is felt in the publishing industry, Jewish federations, Jewish Community Centers, synagogues, Hillel centers, conferences, libraries and individual homes in Israel and North America. The only organization of its kind, Jewish Book Council is the chief proponent of the English language Jewish literary tradition and the main address for information on the North American Jewish literary scene.
