At the Great Jewish Books Summer Program, rising high school juniors and seniors come to the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, Massachusetts, to read selections from important works of modern Jewish literature and consider how they speak to the opportunities and challenges we face today. Under the guidance of college professors, they consider how the rich legacy of modern Jewish literature can inform us in the twenty-first century.
Although the program’s focus is on reading, this is not school in any conventional sense: Great Jewish Books is a lively program full of social, cultural, and recreational opportunities—and no grades—for students who read for the love of reading and who are eager to discover the treasures of the Jewish canon.
Every admitted participant receives a scholarship for the full cost of tuition, room, board, books, and special events.
Sophomores and juniors are eligible to apply. For more information and to apply, visit yiddishbookcenter.org/great-jewish-books.
