Jewish Book Council is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation

As the only organization whose sole focus is the promotion of Jewish books, JBC is continually finding new ways to reach a multi-generational, multi-denominational reading audience while maintaining the traditions of the past.

From Google Hangouts with authors to the presentation of a Lifetime Achievement Award to Cynthia Ozick at the 60th annual National Jewish Book Award ceremony, JBC capitalizes on its unusual conflation of a flexible, dynamic, grassroots nature with a rich, established history to bring out the scope of the Jewish American literary scene. As new technology emerges, JBC accommodates these new trends by adapting current programs and offerings, and developing additional programs that speak to a new generation of readers.

Jewish Book Council would not be able to offer these programs without the generous support of book lovers throughout the country. We need your support to continue our work.

For each donation in the following amounts, we will send you a gift:

JBC Scribe - $54
