Jewish Book Week is an annual international literary festival, held in London. This year, between Saturday 26 February and Sunday 06 March, is its 70th anniversary. It is organized by the Jewish Book Council, a registered charity that dates back to 1925. The Jewish Book Council is one of the oldest organization serving the Jewish community in the United Kingdom and the United States.
Every year, Jewish Book Week brings together writers and speakers – from the most prestigious to debutantes – from the worlds of history, journalism, philosophy, science, art, music, poetry and fiction, in a celebration of ideas.
Besides Jewish themes and writers, the festival also features discussions on the most important issues of the day, and is open to everyone. A number of special events are also organized over the course of the year, outside the festival period.
