The Fife-Davis Family Annual Jewish Book Fair

For more than 35 years, the Weinstein JCC has celebrated Jewish books and authors at its annual Book Fair. The goal of this event is to educate the community about Jewish literature and to stimulate discussion and thought regarding current Jewish issues, history, philosophy, literature and poetry. Check below for the dates of this year's fair!
