Boston to Celebrate Jewish Book Week

Download PDF for this date

Jewish Book Week will be celebrated here with lectures, a radio broadcast, a dramatic presentation and displays on Judaica in all branch libraries where there is a substantial Jewish population in the district.

Through the activities of Miss Fanny Goldstein of the West End branch of the Boston Public Library, one of those instrumental in strengthening national observance of the week, during which recognition is given to Jewish contributions to world literature, the local celebration is expected to be one of the finest in the country.
