Great Jewish Books Book Club

$ 78



 Great Jewish Books Book Club
Join a community of readers and enjoy the best of modern Yiddish literature in English translation. 

Through online discussions with Yiddish Book Center staff and fellow Book Club members, reading resources, and online video conferences, members explore a diverse selection of Yiddish literature in translation. These works—novels, memoirs, short stories, poetry, and more—produced throughout the great upheavals of modernity, speak to our contemporary conflicts and challenges, and to the beauty and sweetness of our traditions. 

As a member of the Book Club, you will:

  • Receive four English-language books at a significant discount: $78 for all four, including shipping within the USA. (International members are welcome; there will be an additional charge for shipping.)
  • Enjoy access to reading resources to enrich your reading experience: book reviews, essays, author profiles, audio and video recordings, and more.
  • Join members-only online video conferences.
  • Participate in a private, members-only Facebook group and join in-depth discussions of the readings with other members and Yiddish Book Center staff.

Our specific selections are a surprise, and we hope that you will enjoy discovering the next title when it arrives in the mail. That being said, if you must know what titles we have planned in order to register, please be in touch with us at and we'll let you in on the secret. Your first book will arrive at the beginning of February 2020.

For more information, please visit our Book Club webpage and register here. The deadline for registration is December 20, 2019, but why wait? You can also buy gift memberships for your book-loving family and friends, as well as join with your book group—there’s no better way to share your commitment to Yiddish literature. Please don’t hesitate to be in touch with any questions at or 413-256-4900, ext. 131.
