This year’s Lee and Bernard Jaffe* Family Jewish Book Festival drew a record number of community members into the Simon Family JCC for the author events. Starting with Seth M. Siegel as the opening night and keynote speaker, each author event inspired audiences with topics ranging from the global water crisis to a tale of a missing lost love.

Thanks to the festival sponsors: Barnes & Noble, Sheraton Norfolk Waterside Hotel, Beth Sholom Village, and the Jewish Book Council. Thanks also to Festival partners, the Holocaust Commission of the UJFT, the Community Relations Council of the UJFT, The Children and Family Department of the JCC, PJ Library, Strelitz Early Childhood Education Center, Jewish Family Service, BBYO and the Board of Rabbis & Cantors of Hampton Roads.

The Simon Family JCC is a constituent agency of United Jewish Federation of Tidewater.
