Jewish Book Week 2020 was, for many of us, the last time we met
together in a large group. Since then, the world has undergone a seismic
shift, driving us to find new ways to connect with family, friends and
community. In these uncertain and sometimes bleak times, there have
been glimmers of light; among them, Jewish Book Week speakers have
continued their conversations with us in digital talks and debates. These
events have reminded us how life is immeasurably enriched by art, music,
conversation - the seemingly simple acts of connecting with one another,
all too easily taken for granted in better times.
This year’s festival will be unlike any other. For the first time, every event
will be available to view online. So, from wherever each of us is watching,
we invite you to join in, take part and help dispel the darkness together.
Welcome, friends old and new, to Jewish Book Week 2021.
