The Association of Jewish Libraries, The Book of Life Podcast’s Jewish Kidlit Mavens Facebook group, and the Jewish Book Council are co-sponsoring the fourth annual #Readukkah Jewish Reading Challenge, December 15-22, 2019.
The event brings fans of Jewish literature together to share favorites, make recommendations, and spread the word about great Jewish writing for children and adults. The goal is to build enthusiasm and grow the audience for the genre, ultimately supporting the publication of even more Jewish books.
Participants share books related in any way to Jews and Judaism by posting about them online during the eight days leading up to Hanukkah, using the hashtag #Readukkah. These tagged reading recommendations may be posted on the #Readukkah Facebook event page or on any other social media or book review site such as Twitter, Instagram, GoodReads, Amazon, YouTube, blogs, or other sites.
“What could be cozier at this time of year than curling up with a great Jewish book?” asks organizer Heidi Rabinowitz. “I’ll tell you what’s cozier: schmoozing about your favorite Jewish books with the whole community!”
To participate in #Readukkah, please RSVP for the Facebook Event at https://www.facebook.com/events/408459150030386/.
