The Baltimore Festival of Jewish Literature

Hosted by organizations across the Baltimore area this November, this showcase of our community’s love of reading, writing, and the written word, features a variety of literary events curated to reflect important issues facing the Jewish community.  From anti-Semitism to anti-racism, the events will be moving conversations with authors evoking inner reflection to inspire work towards justice and peace.
