Book Club Membership

Join a community of readers and enjoy the best of modern Yiddish literature in English translation. Book Club members receive four English-language books over the course of the year. Selections may include novels, memoirs, short stories, and poetry, each thoughtfully chosen by Yiddish Book Center staff from the vast treasure trove of modern Jewish literature.

Great Jewish Books Book Club membership includes:

  • Four English-language books delivered via mail (at a significant discount from retail pricing).
  • Book reviews, essays, author profiles, and audio and video recordings sent via e-mail to enrich your reading experience.
  • Participation in a members-only Facebook group, where you will join a community of readers and engage in lively discussion.
  • Invitations to four members-only online video conferences—one for each book—led by academics and scholars.

    Members will receive a new book every three months (February, April, July, and October), with online discussions about that book available during those three months. 

    The registration deadline for the 2020 Great Jewish Books Book Club is December 20, 2019. Don't miss out—register early!

    Cost: $78 for a yearlong membership in the Book Club, including domestic shipping. Pricing for international shipping can be viewed in the Shipping Region drop-down menu at the bottom of this page.
