CONTEMPORARY JEWISH LITERATURE
Although the Jewish people have been traditionally known as the People of the Book, it would be more precise to call ourselves as the People of the Books. We read, write and talk about books.
We understand, better than anybody else, that all kinds of books are sacred, not only the Bible and the prayer books, objects with the power to change the people’s lives.
Contemporary Jewish Literature includes those works written by Jews about Jewish topics, written not only in Jewish languages but also in other languages. This encompasses the Ladino, Yiddish and Hebrew literature, represented by the Israeli, European and American literature.
Wherever you go…. a book
We recommend a wide range of titles classified in different categories — narrative, biography, poetry, comic, short-stories or tales — and different topics —art, shoah, Sephardic and Ashkenazi’s family experiences, Israel—, from European, American and Israeli authors with a strong Jewish or Israeli identit.
