One Book for Jewish Book Month

Jewish Book Month is an annual event on the American Jewish calendar dedicated to the celebration of Jewish books. It is observed during the month proceeding Hanukkah, thus the exact date changes from year to year. For 2017, Hanukkah begins December 12, so Jewish Book Month will begin November 12.

Every year, Spertus Institute proudly spearheads a One Book initiative for our community, in which a single book is selected for discussions and events across the Chicago region.

The 2017 book will be announced early this fall. Stayed tuned!
