Sholom Aleichem, Israeli Themes Features of Jewish Book Month

Publication of a volume analyzing the influence of Sholem Aleichem on Jewish literature will be one of the high points of the annual celebration of Jewish Book Month, it was announced today by Alan Steinback, president of the Jewish Book Council. The annual observance, sponsored by the National Jewish Welfare Board, will be observed from November 7 through December 7.

Dedicated to Israel’s tenth anniversary celebration, Book Month’s theme for 1958 is “Israel: Land of the Bible.” Some 2,000 communal organizations, including Jewish centers, local Jewish book councils, synagogues, schools and libraries will present programs around the Israeli theme.
