10 Books to Celebrate Jewish Book Month

Jewish Book MonthHere’s a huge thanks to all the Jewish authors and the publishers who bring Jewish books to life.

To mark this year’s Jewish Book Month, I’ve gathered a group of Jewish book recommendations for your bookshelf (and kitchen shelf). Most of the selections are new this year, but for the Jewish sewing and needle craft books I reached back to tap one of the classics. We’ve got the latest top Jewish cookbooks –because you have to eat sometime— and a selection of Jewish book highlights from various genres that I’ve called new and notable.

You’ll find links to the books on Amazon and also Indiebound, which is a consortium of local bookstores.
