The support of the sponsors of the 2012 Lee and Bernard Jaffe* Family Jewish Book Festival enabled the Simon Family JCC to present 12 authors and sell thousands of books.

Business sponsors of this year’s festival were Barnes and Noble Booksellers, Monarch Bank, Altmeyer Funeral Homes, Heritage Bank, Sheraton Norfolk Waterside Hotel, and Beth Sholom Village.

Individual sponsors were Lynn and Hugh Cohen, Fred and Laura Gross, Kim and Michael Gross, Sandra and Miles Leon, and Terri and Lonny Sarfan.

The festival, which ran Nov. 4–18, brought author speakers discussing an array of topics, including Soviet Jewry, bullying, solutions to personal success and comedy. Ultimately, there was something for all ages to share and enjoy.

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