Jewish Book Council Media Kit
Advertise in print and online with the longest-running nonprofit in the American Jewish community whose sole purpose is the promotion of Jewish-interest books. All advertising proceeds support Jewish Book Council programs. We reserve the right to refuse advertisements at our discretion.
Jewish Book Council is the longest-running organization devoted exclusively to the support and celebration of Jewish literature. Through an ever-growing list of projects and programs, 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.
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.
Advertising in Jewish Book Council’s print literary journal, on the Jewish Book Council website, or through Jewish Book Council’s weekly emails, ensures that your message reaches the exact community you need to inform. In any given week, Jewish Book Council reaches approximately 70,000 readers across our platforms. First time advertisers pay up front.
As the literary arm of the organized American Jewish community, Jewish Book Council’s presence is felt in:
- the publishing industry
- the Jewish professional community
- Jewish Federations
- Jewish Community Centers
- homes in North America and across the globe
