About

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.

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
  • syn­a­gogues
  • libraries
  • homes in North Amer­i­ca and across the globe
