On Sunday, December 11, 2022, beginning at 10:00 AM, the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City will present its first-ever New York Jewish Book Festival, featuring talks, panels, and author signings. The daylong event will touch on themes of Jewish heritage including culture and history, modern life and literature, the Holocaust, food and cookbooks, and books for kids and families.

The unique services provided by JBI, all of which are free of charge, enable over 35,000 children, adults and seniors – from New York to New Zealand, from Ft. Lauderdale to Moscow, from Tel Aviv to Buenos Aires – to participate fully in the life of their communities.
