17th Annual Jewish Book Festival Nov. 10-21, 2016

November 10, 2016 @ 8:00 am - November 21, 2016 @ 4:00 pm


If you’re looking for a good book, an upcoming nine-day event will be the place to be. Ohio Humanities is pleased to announce an $8,000 grant award to the Mandel Jewish Community Center of Cleveland in support of its 17th annual Jewish Book Festival, Nov. 13-21, 2016. Since its inception, it has become one of the most well-attended Jewish book festivals in the country. The Ohio Humanities grant has enabled festival organizers to add the following author-scholar presentations:

Joshua Aronson, an associate professor of applied psychology with New York University. He will discuss his new book about a “somewhat unknown” Jewish hero of the holocaust.
Rabbi A. James Rudin, an American Jewish Committee’s Senior Interreligious Adviser. He will present about Roosevelt’s administration’s lack of acknowledgement of the WWII concentration camps throughout Europe
Chanan Tigay, an assistant professor of creative writing at San Francisco State, and author of The Lost Book of Moses: The Hunt for the World’s Oldest Bible.

NOTE: The scholar talks listed above are free; however, the Mandel JCC may have other events which may require tickets or preregistration. >>> Additional Details

This program is made possible, in part, by Ohio Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
