About Jewish Book Week

Jewish Book Week is an annual international literary festival, held in London.

Every year, the festival brings together writers and speakers – from the most eminent to the first-time published – from the worlds of history, journalism, philosophy, science, art, music, poetry and fiction in a celebration of ideas.

The festival features Jewish themes and writers, as well as discussions on the most important issues of the day, and is open to everyone.

Over eighty events are presented during the festival itself. A number of special events are also organised over the course of the year, outside the festival period.

Jewish Book Week is organised by the Jewish Book Council, a registered UK charity.
